Break Away - The heroes and hell raisers that made road cycling
by Euan Ferguson
I was delighted to be contacted by Anna Watson, Editor at Publisher Frances Lincoln, asking if I could help with information and photographs for Euan Ferguson's book Break Away which was to feature fifty heroes and hell raisers that made road cycling. I was pleased to help, sending a copy of Marguerite Wilson, The First Star of Women's Cycling and later, a couple of choice photographs.
In the completed book Marguerite sits between Fausto Coppi and Louison/Jean Bobet. I was delighted that Marguerite has been recognised, and amongst such exulted company!
