Woo, now that the TT is done (no spoilers here), there is no danger of the book being completely predictive, so I can go ahead and talk about it.
With the possible exception of Tim Krabbe's The Rider, my favorite work of cycling fiction remains Ralph Hurne's The Yellow Jersey.
It is a rollicking tale of a washed up rider in his last tour unexpectedly finding himself in yellow after a long breakaway combined with a number of drug suspensions. With the drug suspensions, heroic defense of the yellow, epic breakaways and leg shattering cracks, the book is prescient of this years wild Tour.
The book is a bit dated, but pretty exciting and the perfect antidote to withdrawl from this years tour. Go get it at your local bookstore or amazon.
gotta keep looking up
