Colombia Es Pasión!

The generation of racing cyclists who changed their nation and the Tour de France

By Matt Rendell

Colombia has long been the only developing nation contending at cycling’s highest level. Yet its cycling sons are not the products of a rigorous sports system. They come from harder backgrounds that surprise, shock – even, at times, enchant. Colombia Es Pasión! explores the lives and dreams of each of the nation’s leading cyclists. Theirs are inspiring stories of overcoming poverty and violence, sickness and corruption, and achieving global sporting glory.
