It was fun to see a book based on something that really has happened. Two years ago a dutch cyclist was driven into the barbwire by a car from the Tour organisation.
I love the Tour de France but I can imagine if you are not familiar with it and the whole media circus that surrounds it then the book will feel different to you.
The story itself was entertaining not much wrong with it. Nicely written and flowed well. Also nice that it is set over a longer period.
