About this product
- DescriptionThe language of cycling is vibrant, sophisticated, often impenetrable and extremely French. Find yourself confused, dding along when a rouleur relates how le biscuit was effrite (crumbled)? How today they're feeling Angers (past caring)? Fear more, for Boulting's Velosaurus will illuminate, enlighten and, frankly, mislead. In his Velosaurus, ITV Tour de France commentator and cycling writer Ned Boulting provides the ultimate lexicon of nsense termilogy surrounding the esteemed Tour de France. Featuring essential vocabulary like Alpe (an Alp), panache (riding with doomed flamboyance, conscious of the need to renew one's contract), moutarde (any race that ends, begins or passes through the city of Dijon) and maillot (a jumper, obviously), Boulting's Velosaurus is the ideal companion to all things peloton for linguistically-challenged fans of n-automotive two-wheeled sport.
- Author BiographyNed Boulting started his broadcasting career at Sky in 1997, working as a reporter alongside Jeff Stelling on the now legendary show Soccer Saturday.
