A unique graphic novel capturing the heroes and legendary moments from 100 years of the Tour de France

Jan Cleijne has created the first-ever graphic novel of the Tour. Frame by glorious frame, this beautiful work captures the essence of the Tour de France, the grit, and the glory. Since Maurice Garin's inaugural victory in 1903, hundreds of thousands of miles have been covered in pursuit of the yellow jersey, and few of them have been without incident or drama. Here are the Tour's legends, vividly portrayed: Eugène Christophe welding his bicycle back together at the foot of the Pyrenees in 1913; Bartali vs. Coppi, 1949; Poulidor shoulder-to-shoulder with Anquetil on the Puy de Dôme, 1964; Tommy Simpson's death on Ventoux, 1967; Lance Armstrong's domination and disgrace; finishing with Bradley Wiggins's and Chris Froome's back-to-back victories for Britain.

Jan Cleijne is a professional illustrator and an amateur racing cyclist.
