Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"Excellent." (Rouleur)

"Moore entertainingly unravels the complexities of the relationships within the peloton during a three-week stage race, the sort of battle in which alliances can shift from one mountain peak to another and your enemy's enemy can suddenly become your most valued friend" (Richard Williams Guardian)

"From the opening pages this is a book that grips. Combining great insight, interviews and anecdotes with wonderfully vivid writing, it is thoroughly researched and well written. Like the event itself, the book is so engrossing, you don't want it to end" (Scotland on Sunday)

"As a matter of some urgency, arm yourself first with Slaying the Badger by Richard Moore and immerse yourself in the epic story of the 1986 Tour and the two greatest riders of their era. ... The race and the book builds towards a gripping page turning climax which you don't want to end" (Bredan Gallagher Daily Telegraph)

"A gripping narrative of this psychological and physical three-week war... It is good to be reminded that the race used to have twice-a-day stages, that helmets didn't always obscure the riders and that technology once had little place in the Tour" (Wall Street Journal)

Format: Taschenbuch
Richard Moore hat ein großartiges Buch über die Tour de France von 1986 geschrieben - den Kampf der Teamgefährten Bernard Hinault und Greg LeMond um den Sieg.
Dazu hat Moore die beiden Protagonisten sowie Trainer, Sportdirektoren, und andere Radsportler wie Phil Anderson, Steve Bauer befragt, Medienberichte recherchiert und sich natürlich noch einmal die Fernsehaufzeichnungen angesehen.
Herausgekommen ist ein unglaublich spannendes, hervorragend recherchiertes Buch, das man auch als Reflexion über Vertrauen, Führungsstärke und Management-Methoden lesen kann.

Not just for cycling enthusiasts, Slaying the Badger provides all kinds of interesting details on the cycling sport during the '80s and at the same time with some of the descriptions of the Tour de France stages makes tense and exciting reading!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic! Bravo! Bravo! 7. Juni 2012
Von Hank Rearden - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Greg LeMond and my brother inspired me to start riding and racing. Back in the day if we wanted detailed info about races we had to wait for the next issue of Velo News or Winning magazine. Then CBS or one of the networks started covering the Tour de France on Sundays. We loved the coverage even though it only scratched the surface of the drama that is professional bicycle racing.

This is a great book. A great read about really what was the pivotal point in pro cycling in the modern era. Hinault represented the "old guard" of cycling. A figure so prominent an dominating that he was in fact the "patron of the peleton". Riders were in awe of him and often outright feared him. Some loved him, some hated him. LeMond represented the American invasion into one of the holy of holy European sports. Even though Jock Boyer had been there for years he wasn't a talent like LeMond. I always admired LeMond because he respected the sport and the traditions of sport. The 1980's to me represents the end of the "honest" cycling era. Sure there were doping issues during the 60's 70's and 80's (Delgado in '88) etc... But EPO really changed the sport and has ruined cycling IMO. I digress.

If you are a fan of bicycle racing and especially a fan of the Hinault, Fignon, LeMond, Roche, Kelly era of the 1980's this is a must read book. Moore goes way out of his way to write a fair and balanced book on what was, is, to many of us one of the greatest and most dramatic Tour de France races ever. Because of technology, sophisticated doping, and the money now involved in cycling racing like this no longer happens today. Cycling has become a sport of specialists and is orchestrated to the minute detail. Love him or hate him Hinault raced like few have after him. Panache is the perfect word to describe his "style". While I land squarely on the side of LeMond and how he carried himself professionally during his career and after. The Badger certainly added spice and character to his era of domination.

Buy, borrow, or even steal this book. It is that good.

An excellent book that is well written and researched. The author seems to have researched the history of Lemond, Hinault and Kochli thoroughly giving entertaining insight into each character. An illuminating read which I couldn't wait to get back to each day. Well worth it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Slaying The Badger:LeMond, Hinault, and the Greatest Ever Tour de France 12. September 2011
Von Thomas Purcell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I had read portions of this book in a cycling magazine, and they were so good, I had to get the book. Very well-written, with a real understanding of the inside aspects to professional cycling. Richard Moore's style fits the true-life characters very well, as he moves from interview to interview with the main and the associated people in the story. One would not need to be a hard-core cycling fan to appreciate this book; it's a real page turner.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Cycling suspense! 16. September 2011
Von Bobby B - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Greg LeMond has always been one of my heroes. Before reading this book, I really didn't know much about Bernard Hinault, except that he was a 5-time winner of the Tour. I was enlightened by this book. The author does a good job of trying to tease out the truth of what really happened at the 1986 TdF. But...there's truth with a 'T' and then each characters version of the truth. Maybe we will never truly know what the Badger's intentions where that year. I have a newfound respect for Le Blaireau as well! Lemond and Hinault come to life in this book. If you are a fan of cycling or even just a fan of sport, this book is a page turner.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic Read for a Beginner Cyclist 23. Mai 2012
Von James Carey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I am just starting to get into the sport a little more (personal maintenance/repairs, history, training) and this book was a great read. I enjoyed it mostly for it's interviews and opinions of the participants directly involved in the event. There is a good amount of history covered in the first 2/3's of the book (author mentions this in the preface) but it's completely necessary and does a great job of framing all that ends up happening around the 1986 tour.

I didn't know much about this topic before reading this book so there is a possibility that if you were alive during the tour and or an avid cycling fan you might already know a great deal of the information presented. In addition, even though I knew LeMond won this tour (spoiler alert?) I didn't know how each stage played out (minus L'Alpe d'Huez) so reading about each stage was very engrossing and held my attention very well.

The only addition I would like to see is more history about the participants after the 1986 tour. Moore comments on this a little bit but not as in depth as the history before the tour. It'd be interesting to really see how this particular tour shaped not only the individuals but ultimately the sport.
