Synopsis

The Official Treasures of the Tour de France is a celebration of the 100th edition of one of the world's most famed annual events. Generally considered to be the greatest test of endurance in the sporting world, the Tour de France covers more than 2,200 miles in just over three weeks, climbing high into both the Alps and Pyrenees on a circular journey around France and briefly into neighbouring countries before ending on Paris's iconic Champs-Elysees. This brand new edition, in an exciting new format with new features and stories, is part of Carlton's highly successful Treasures series. It comprises an authoritative narrative account of each major era in the sport up to and including the 2012 Tour and items of memorabilia from the past 109 years. There are features on the superstars and the memorable moments for each of the eras. It also contains more than 50 facsimile items of sporting memorabilia from the race archives packaged into five folders.

The reader can relive the dramatic events that have entranced the watching millions by holding and examining souvenir brochures, period newspapers, posters, stickers, postcards and items of correspondence from leading figures associated with the epic sports event.
