The fifth book in the series of eight UK regional cycling guides from author Simon Warren takes readers (and their bikes) to the shores and skylines of South-West England. Plot a route between any two points in this region and its profile is likely to resemble an upturned saw blade – together, the Cotswolds, the Mendips and the exquisite Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks form a perfect hill climber’s playground. In quiet Cornish fishing villages, on top of Bodmin Moor and cresting the Salisbury Plain are legions of punishingly beautiful roads eager to meet their cycling match, and the very best are between these pages. With a list including the dramatic Cheddar Gorge, Gold Hill, Haytor Vale and the fearsome Porlock, this region is one to relish.

Tyler Hamilton war ein Naturtalent, einer der leidensfähigsten und zähesten Radfahrer, bei US Postal der zweite Mann hinter Lance Armstrong. In seinem Buch erzählt er, wie die Amerikaner sich in den Neunzigern die Seele aus dem Leib fuhren und dennoch keine Chance gegen europäische Teams hatten, die immer schneller waren, immer noch Luft hatten - bis die Mannschaft anfängt, sich spritzen zu lassen. Er legt offen, wie straff organisiert dieses System war, das das berühmteste Radrennen der Welt zur Tour de Farce werden ließ, wie korrupte Ärzte und skrupellose Teamchefs agieren und Mannschaften zu gut geölten Maschinen wurden. Wie eine ganze Sportart buchstäblich unter die Räder kam und eine Parallelwelt aus Lügen, Angst und Manipulation entstand, die ehemalige Helden als lädierte Wracks zurücklässt.

Als letzter durch's Ziel zu gehen ist normalerweise kein Grund zu feiern. Doch wenn man ein Radrennen über dreitausend Kilometer bestreitet, bei gnadenlosem Wetter Bergketten bezwingt, wenn man diese Herausforderung meistert, und zwar in der langsamsten Zeit, ist man dann wirklich ein Verlierer? Lanterne Rouge, die inoffizielle Bezeichnung für die Letztplatzierung bei der Tour de France, benannt nach den roten Rücklichtern am letzten Waggon einer Eisenbahn, ist längst viel mehr als bloß ein Trostpreis. Max Leonard widmet sich in seinem ganz und gar außergewöhnlichen Buch den vergessenen, inspirierenden, teilweise absurden Geschichten der Letztplatzierten seit 1903. Wir erfahren von Etappensiegern und ehemaligen Gelben-Trikot-Trägern, die auch das Leben am anderen Ende des Hauptfeldes kennengelernt haben. Von Ausbrechern, die für eine Flasche Wein angehalten haben, um sich dann zu verfahren, und von Gedopten, deren Cocktails sie versehentlich langsamer gemacht haben. Max Leonard stellt Betrachtungen an, die weit über die Welt des Spitzensports und der Leistungsphilosophie hinausgehen und uns einladen zu hinterfragen, was Erfolg wirklich bedeutet.
