Summary
"The Tour de France is probably cruel and it's undoubtedly unusual, but it also makes for an exceptionally good story. After 105 years and 95 laps of France (time out only for World Wars), the fine spectacle of life-threatening exertion, bare-faced cheating, roadside sabotage, ludicrous clothing, extreme intimate discomfort and grown men at the absolute end of their tethers has gathered the race an audience of millions." "Blazing Saddles takes a no-holds-barred look at the Tour's history - the rivalries and controversies, the blind passions and filthy suspicions, the wheeling and the dealing."--book jacket
