Cyklistika

Cyklistika je z môjho pohľadu jeden z najúžasnejších športov, ktorý absolútne preverí fyzické aj psychické schopnosti každého cyklistu. Mám rád jej aktívnu aj pasívnu podobu. Zdolať náročné stúpanie, alebo sa len tak previezť po okolí má jednoznačne svoje čaro. A rovnako tak sledovať zápolenia profesionálov vjednorázových klasikách, alebo trojtýždňových Grand Tours je niečo, na čo si vždy nájdem čas. Cyklistiku mám jednoducho veľmi rád vo všetkých jej podobách. Dalo by sa tu dať naozaj toho veľmi veľa, ale obmedzím sa na "predstavenie" mojej osobne cyklo knižnice. Možno tu niekto nájde námet na vhodný darček pre blízkeho ;-)

GOLDEN STAGES OF THE TOUR DE FRANCE: Tales from the legendary stages of the world´s greatest bike race

autor: Richard Allchin, Adrian Bell (Eds.)
vydavateľstvo: Sport & Publicity; 2nd edition edition
počet strán: 226

The Tour de France began as a newspaper publicity stunt designed to do down a rival sports paper: a circumnavigation of the whole country in six colossal stages would make it the longest, hardest, most heroic cycle-race possible, and thereby seize the public´s imagination. The organisers of that first Tour in 1903 could scarcely have foreseen just how fervently the race would grip the nation, still less that they were establishing what was to become the world´s greatest and certainly, toughest annual sporting event. Every July since 1903, interrupted only by world wars, the finest cyclists have assembled to ride the 2,500 miles of La Grande Boucle. Simply to complete a Tour de France is the ambition of every professional cyclist - and to wear the legendary yellow jersey, if only for a day, is a special honour. Golden Stages, first published in 2003 to celebrate the centenary of the Tour, is now republished, with eight additional chapters, to coincide with the 100th Tour. Each writer has selected and told the story of a particular Stage to examine what it is that makes the Tour such a majestic and moving event, beginning with the first stage of the first Tour in 1903, and ending with that stage in 2012 when Bradley Wiggins effectively secured the first overall win by a British rider. Their accounts show how much has changed in the 100 years the bicycles, the roads, tactics and organisation. But they also show what has not changed the extravagant scale of the race, the mystique of the maillot jaune, and the courage of all who compete. Those things have remained the same, and they are vividly portrayed here. This second edition does not ignore the dark period the Tour has gone through in the years since 2003, these are addressed in the new Introduction.

Tour Climbs: The complete guide to every mountain stage on the Tour de France

The first book to cover in detail every major climb ever used in the Tour de France, including detail on the actual route (with maps and profile), length, height, list of winners and route descriptions of how to emulate the King of the Mountains and get from the bottom to the top.
Every year the Tour de France is said to only really start when it reaches the first mountain stages: the drama of the race only really begins as the climbers take over in the Pyrenees, Vosges or Alps. The Tour is also the most famous classic in cycling and draws huge audiences to the TV and internet coverage (the official web site holds the world record for number of hits excluding search engines).
But the route of the Tour is not just for professionals. A growing number of people now take their bikes and actually do a stage of the Tour (the Etap - for amateurs, which this year attracted 8,000 people to climb one of the hardest mountain stages in the Tour) or spend a week doing some of the more notorious climbs (Ventoux - where Tommy Simpson died in the 50s).
This book is for everyone who watches the Tour and has even the slightest of an inkling that they´d like to do at least one of the climbs. Packed with information on each climb, this is the ultimate guide to the Tour climbs, which will remain important for many years to come (the Tour only uses a set number of climbs, which they return to every couple of years).

Cycling´s spring races are always the most anticipated of the year, not only because they herald the start of the season, but also because they are brutally difficult and spectacularly unpredictable.

Clattering through agrarian hamlets on routes established a century ago, "The Spring Classics" celebrates cycling´s most glorious and meaningful history. "The Spring Classics" delves into the stories of Milan - San Remo, Ghent-Wevelgem, the Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, the Amstel Gold Race, La Fleche Wallone, and Liege-Bastogne-Liege through hundreds of rare and restored photographs presented in a lavish format.

počet strán: 248

Miguel Indurain will pass into history not just as the first cyclist to win five straight Tours de France, but also as the standard-bearer for a whole nation. While Spain lived through the dream of his repeated victories the country came to a standstill, for Indurain stole people´s hearts not just by the number, but by the manner of his victories. Seeing him on the road or away from the action, the gallant loser or the strong, calm victor, the Spanish gained hope, and then faith. And so did many others, for it was the dignity and modesty that Miguel Indurain invariably displayed, in victory and defeat, that endeared him to us all. A farmer´s son from a small village in Navarra, he never strayed far from his roots, nor did he allow his extraordinary success to go to his head. Javier Garcia Sanchez is a prize-winning novelist with a passion for cycle racing. In this biography of Miguel Indurain he takes us on an emotional journey through Indurain´s prodigious career. He recounts his exploits and great battles in the saddle, the glory moments and the disappointments, and describes his passions, his ideas, and his land.

Indurain - Relentless

autor: Alasdair Fotheringham
vydavateľstvo: Ebury Press
počet strán: 320

Miguel Indurain is Spain’s greatest cyclist of all time and one of the best Tour racers in history. He is the only bike rider to have won five successive Tours de France, as well as holding the title for the youngest ever race leader in the Tour of Spain. This is his story. As the all-conquering hero of the 90s, Indurain steadfastly refused to be overwhelmed by fame; remaining humble, shy and true to his country roots. Along with his superhuman calmness, iron will-power and superb bike handling skills, he was often described as a machine. Yet 1996 saw Indurain, the Tour’s greatest ever champion, spectacularly plummet, bringing his career and supremacy to an abrupt end. In Indurain, Alasdair Fotheringham gets to the heart of this enigmatic character, reliving his historic accomplishments in vibrant colour, and exploring how this shaped the direction taken by generations of Spanish racers - raising Spanish sport to a whole new level.

The Death of Marco Pantani: A Biography

vydavateľstvo: Phoenix; New Ed edition
počet strán: 320

At 9:30 pm on 14 February 2004, former Tour de France winner Marco Pantani was found dead in Rimini. It emerged that he had been addicted to cocaine since Autumn 1999, weeks after being expelled from the Tour of Italy for blood doping. Conspiracy theories abounded - that he was injected in his sleep by a business rival, that the Olympic Committee had framed him, that Italian Industrialists had engineered his downfall, etc etc.
If none of these is entirely true and none of them fully explains Pantani´s personal tragedy, none of them is foundationless. This book debunks the myths and makes surprising revelations. About Pantani´s personal tragedy, but also about the world of cycling. Matt Rendell had access not only to court transcripts but to many of Pantani´s friends and the doctors who treated him.
But Pantani´s life is about much more than drug addiction. Lance Armstrong described him as ´more of an artist than an athlete - an extravagant figure ...´ Despite being plagued with injuries he won both the Giro and the Tour in 1998, something very few cyclists even attempt. He was an inspirational icon, and the remarkable wins against all odds make gripping reading.

Tento výber si nekladie za cieľ kategorizovať bicykle príliš rigidne, či ich predstavovať chronologicky. Namiesto toho predstavuje široké spektrum toho, čím všetkým môže bicykel byť, a príbehy týkajúce sa jednotlivých modelov. Hravé, experimentálne a novátorské prvky bicyklov sú rovnako dôležité, ako to, kto na nich jazdil a akú rolu v histórii zohrali. Všetky bicykle uvedené v tejto knihe spĺňajú dnes prijímané definície. Nájdeme tu pretekárske bicykle s vypracovanými detailmi, skladacie bicykle s veľmi dôvtipnými mechanizmami a turistické bicykle navrhnuté s náležitou starostlivosťou a pozornosťou pre dlhšie cesty. Sú tu aj bicykle, ktoré vyzerajú neobyčajne, hoci ich výkon je priemerný, dráhové bicykle bez bŕzd, na ktorých sa jazdia rýchlostné preteky, a bicykle, ktoré sa vzpierajú akejkoľvek kategorizácii. Cyklopedie čitateľa pozýva, aby sa nechal inšpirovať a zdieľal spoločne s autorom jeho nekonečné nadšenie pre bicykle.

Tajné preteky

Tajné preteky prinášajú nekompromisný pohľad na prostredie profesionálnej cyklistiky a problém dopingu, ktorý ohromil celý športový svet a nevyhol sa ani najväčšej legende Lanceovi Armstrongovi. Vo svojej šokujúcej a odvážnej spovedi odhaľuje Tyler Hamilton, držiteľ zlatej olympijskej medaily, nechvályhodnú pravdu o svojom milovanom športe s rovnakým odhodlaním, s akým chcel kedysi vyhrať Tour de France. Tento náruživý pretekár, medzi jazdcami známy nepochopiteľnou vytrvalosťou a neuveriteľnou schopnosťou znášať bolesť – patril kedysi k najobľúbenejším a najlepším cyklistom na svete. Na pretekoch Tour de France v roku 2003 skončil štvrtý aj napriek tomu, že si hneď v jednej z prvých etáp zlomil kľúčnu kosť – predtým ako dorazil do cieľa, zatínal zuby tak silno, že si jedenásť zubov zbrúsil až na koreň. Svoju profesionálnu kariéru odštartoval s tímom U. S. Postal Service v deväťdesiatych rokoch, kde sa rýchlo vypracoval na Armstrongovho najspoľahlivejšieho domestika a stal sa jedným z jeho najbližších priateľov. Hamilton sprevádzal Armstronga na jeho ťažení na Tour de France a dopomohol mu k trom zo siedmich víťazstiev. Niekoľko týždňov po tom, čo Hamilton dosiahol svoj vlastný osobný vrchol – prvé miesto na Letných olympijských hrách 2004 v Aténach –, prišiel nečakane koniec jeho úspešnej kariéry. A bol to koniec viac než potupný: uznali ho za vinného z dopingu a udelili mu prísny dištanc.

V júni 2013 Lance Armstrong definitívne opúšťa svoju rozľahlú rezidenciu v Texase. Predal ju, aby zmiernil straty vzniknuté mnohomiliónovými žalobami. Juliet Macurová bola pri tom – rozprávala sa s jeho priateľkou a deťmi a vypočula si Armstrongovu verziu pravdy. Popri Oprah Winfreyovej patrila k tým vyvoleným zástupcom médií, ktorí smeli vyspovedať najznámejšieho vyvrheľa vo svete športu. V tejto knihe Armstrong odhaľuje svoju pravú tvár. Skutočnú hĺbku a šírku jeho tvrdení však dotvárajú výpovede viac ako stovky ľudí, ktorí sa pohybovali v jeho blízkosti. Patria medzi nich rodinní príslušníci, ktorých Armstrong dávno zavrhol – adoptívny otec, po ktorom nosí priezvisko, stará mama, teta. Azda tú najpresnejšiu výpoveď o Armstrongovi predstavuje nahrávka svedectva zosnulého J. T. Neala, jedného z najvplyvnejších Armstrongových náhradných otcov, zaznamenaná počas posledných dvoch rokov Nealovho života. V tom čase márne bojoval s rakovinou, zatiaľ čo si Armstrong získaval slávu a obdiv fanúšikov na celom svete. Nakoniec to však boli práve Armstrongovi niekdajší kamaráti, tí, ktorí sa kedysi pohybovali v úzkom kruhu najbližších , čo ho zradili. Zasadili Armstrongovi osudný úder tým, že porušili kódex mlčanlivosti. Ten chránil krutú pravdu o cyklistickom športe – a krutú pravdu o jeho zlatom chlapcovi – pred verejnosťou.

Příběhy Corsa rosa - Sto ročníků Giro d'Italia

autor: Tomáš Macek
vydavateľstvo: Prostor
počet strán: 620

Kniha volně navazuje na Příběhy Staré dámy, které se zabývaly historií cyklistického závodu Tour de France. Tentokrát se zaměřujeme na druhý z tria slavných třítýdenních závodů – Giro d’Italia. Také ten každoročně přitahuje pozornost milionů fanoušků na celém světě a v roce 2017 završil i on první stovku svých ročníků. V posledních letech, s přibývajícími úspěchy českých cyklistů, se o Giru stále častěji hovoří také v Česku. V roce 2018 navíc bude závod mimořádně atraktivní i proto, že poprvé v historii odstartuje mimo evropské území – ve Starém městě v Jeruzalémě. Stejně jako Příběhy Staré dámy, jsou i Příběhy Corsa rosa vybaveny unikátními dobovými fotografiemi a bohatým statistickým přehledem.

Rozličné úhly pohledu dávají dohromady barvitý obraz jednoho z nejzajímavějších moderních sportů.

Když v červenci 1919 k jeho nelibosti oblékli Eugèna Christopha coby prvního závodníka historie do žlutého dresu označujícího vedoucího muže závodu, netušili pořadatelé Tour de France, jakou posedlost tím spustili. Za století se v něm vystřídaly bezmála tři stovky vyvolených. Stal se modlou, smyslem sportovního snažení několika generací cyklistů. Fascinace jménem maillot jaune nekončí ani po sto letech. Ponořte se do příběhů těch, kteří měli to štěstí a příležitost se třeba byť jen na jediný den se žlutým rounem polaskat. Osmý díl limitované sběratelské edice 53×11 zalije barva slunce.
