Shoulder to Shoulder - The Horton Collection

Bicycle Racing in the Age of Anquetil


£12.99 
 


With a comb in his pocket, his glamorous blonde wife by his side, and an unyielding will backed by blazing speed, Jacques Anquetil became cycling's leading ambassador as the sport left behind the post-war era of Fausto Coppi to embrace the promise of the freewheeling sixties.

Shoulder to Shoulder ushers us into the zenith of Anquetil's career with a fully restored collection of rare and valuable photographs. With the methodical son of Normandy in the lead, cycling's professional peloton races through Europe's capital cities and up its mountainous pathways, laying a path to a cosmopolitan era of unlimited possibilities.

Presenting more than 100 brilliant images - most unseen since their original publication in the magazines and newspapers of the day - Shoulder to Shoulder showcases the rise of a generation of cycling superstars whose gutsy riding and easy style founded the modern era of professional bike racing. Great names in these pages include Rik van Looy, Tom Simpson, Raymond Poulidor, Jan Janssen, Miguel Poblet, Rudi Altig, Federico Bahamontes, Jean Stablinski, Gastone Nencini, Jean Graczyk, and many more.

With an appendix of explanatory notes for each photo, a sewn, lay-flat binding, and premium acid-free paper, Shoulder to Shoulder will be an enduring addition to every cycling enthusiast's library.

The Horton Collection is one of the world's finest collections of cycling memorabilia. Over the course of twenty-five years Shelly and Brett Horton have amassed an unprecedented 15,000 objects and 170,000 original vintage photographs. Their passion for the sport and its legacy have led them to the world's greatest races, and many of the sport's living legends have entrusted their own treasures to the care of The Horton Collection. The Hortons live in San Francisco, California.
