How I Won the Yellow Jumper
“Paris, 4 July 2003: My first Tour de France. I had never seen a bike race. I had only vaguely heard of Lance Armstrong. I had no idea what I was doing there. Yet, that day I was broadcasting live on television. I fumbled my way through a few platitudes, before summing up with the words, “…Dave Millar just missing out on the Yellow Jumper.” Yes, the Yellow Jumper.”
Ned Boulting's account of his first eight years covering the Tour de France for ITV take readers behind the scenes of the world's most famous cycle race. A fine read.
