Great Rivalries

Author: Andrews, Kevin

Description: Great Rivalries is the story of Gino Bartali, Fausto Coppi and the champion Italian cyclists who preceded them. It is about the place of cycling in a nation emerging from division, its agrarian past, widespread impoverishment, and competing visions about creating a modern state. It is interwoven with the story of Italy itself, which began a century earlier – and continues to play-out today. Kevin Andrews began working as a sports commentator and race caller from the age of 17. For a decade, he called many sporting events before pursuing a career in the law and public life. He has written about sport for a number of publications and has been a guest commentator for track cycling. He is a keen recreational cyclist and intermittent Masters’ competitor. His youngest son rides for a UCI Continental Team
