100 years before Lance Armstrong became a famed American bicycle racer in what is considered a “European” sport, another American rider amassed fame and glory on the bicycle racing tracks of the world: Marshall “Major” Taylor. The first African-American sportsman outside boxing to become internationally famous, Taylor’s life story is one of the most fascinating stories ever told about any athlete–white or black.

This new third edition is fully updated, expanded and illustrated throughout with over 100 high-quality duotone photographs. No cycling library is complete without this book. Paperback.
