Pedro Delgado Book - A Life on the Pedals

Pedro Delgado’s 13-year racing career spanned one of cycling’s golden decades.

Riding against Bernard Hinault and Laurent Fignon in their prime in the early 1980s, then later against Stephen Roche and Greg Lemond, through to mentoring Miguel Indurain in the 1990s.

He won the 1988 Tour de France plus two Vuelta a Espana, however, he was a rider whose defeats were often every bit as memorable. Who can forget Perico turning up late to the '89 prologue!

More than a cycling biography, this book gives a rare and often amusing insight into the inner world of the professional peloton in that era – life in the team hotel; the obsessions about diet and health; the eccentricities and foibles of both the riders and their directors; as well as the loyalties and feuds provoked by this, the hardest of sports.
