Publikace: Gironimo!: Riding the Very Terrible 1914 Tour of Italy - Tim Moore. Twelve years after Tim Moore toiled round the route of the Tour de

France, he senses his achievement being undermined by the truth

about 'Horrid Lance'. His rash response is to take on a fearsome

challenge from an age of untarnished heroes: the notorious 1914

Giro d'Italia. History's most appalling bike race was an ordeal of

400-kilometre stages, cataclysmic night storms and relentless

sabotage - all on a diet of raw eggs and red wine. Of the 81 who

rolled out of Milan, only eight made it back. Committed to total

authenticity, Tim acquires the ruined husk of a gearless,

wooden-wheeled 1914 road bike, some maps and an alarming period

outfit topped off with a pair of blue-lensed welding goggles. What

unfolds is the tale of one decrepit crock trying to ride another up

a thousand lonely hills, then down them with only wine corks for

brakes. From the Alps to the Adriatic, the pair steadily fall to

bits, on an adventure that is by turns bold, beautiful and

recklessly incompetent. Publikace: Gironimo!: Riding the Very Terrible 1914 Tour of Italy - Tim Moore. On the eve of the Giro d'Italia's 100th anniversary, Tim Moore sets out to cycle the route of the first race, all 3,162 km of it. On a 100-year-old bike. That he built himself. The Giro is arguably the most brutal of the Grand Tours, and it began in style. At midnight on 24 May 1914 eighty-one starters were waved off by 10,000 spectators for this first circuit of Italy. Two weeks later, after enduring cataclysmic storms, roads strewn with nails, even the loss of an eye by one competitor, eight cyclists finished. Tim hadn't done any significant cycling for twelve years, but taking on the 1914 Giro was a compelling challenge. To make it more authentic, he decided to do it on a 1914 bike, which, unburdened by relevant experience, he needed to assemble from a stack of rusty parts in a Breton farmer's barn. Fuelled by Chianti, wearing period leather goggles and a woollen cycling shirt, and with the winner of the 1914 Giro's diary as his trusty companion, Tim sets off to tell the story of this historic race, as well as the travails of a middle-aged man cycling up a lot of mountains on a mainly wooden bicycle.
