Best Cycling Books Day of Glory or Day of Pain: The Choice of Twenty Great Champions

Written by Laurent Watiez
Translated by William L. Westbrook

Hardcover

From Merckx to Hinault and Van Looy to Van Steenbergen. These riders were amazing. And just when you thought you knew everything about them - their success, glory, failures, and weaknesses - one simple question gets them all riled up again, almost enough to make them jump back on the bicycle.

With this book, we relive some wonderful racing moments and hear from the greats themselves about their long and eventful careers. Asked what single memory lingers most in their minds, these 20 champions offer up some surprisingly funny and sometimes shocking stories about their experiences in the professional peloton. Each one played the game well, often relaying a story about an incident or two that has never before been reported.

A tremendously popular book in Europe since its publication in the French and Dutch languages in 2000, nothing so entertaining has been published in the English language in decades.

Peer inside this gallery of unique moments in the history of cycling - some of them tough, some of them amazing, and some...outright comical!
