After almost a decade of reporting on the exploits of the pro peloton, raconteur Felix Lowe takes to the saddle and sets out to conquer the road from Barcelona to Rome. Following in the tracks of the world’s greatest wheelmen, he puts professional cycling’s three major stage races – the Tour de France, Vuelta a España and Giro d’Italia – under the microscope, whilst capturing the potent mix of madness, humour and human spirit that fuels stage winners and pedal spinners alike.
