About the Author

Colin O'Brien is an Irish sports writer based in Rome. His passion for cycling and the European professional racing scene was ignited when Marco Pantani and the world's best riders came to Dublin with the 1998 Tour de France. He contributes to leading publications worldwide, including Rouleur, Peloton, Cyclist, and ProCycling


"O'Brien wonderfully captures the colorful characters and landscapes that have shaped a century of Italy's national cycling race. An excellent, detailed narrative that expertly places the Giro within the context of modern Italian history."--Publishers Weekly "There is a feast of anecdote to enjoy. A marvelous account and a tremendously exciting story. "--The Guardian "The Giro and Italy, Italy and the Giro: this book helps to explain how each has helped shape the other. It is clear that the Giro has been an important feature of Italian sport--and indeed the country--since 1909; some have even suggested that 'the race has done more to unite Italy than Garibaldi's Risorgimento ever managed.' An excellent introduction to the history of the Giro and all that it means to Italy and cycling." --Road Magazine
