The must-have encyclopedia for all Tour de France fans.

Celebrating the centenary of cycling's most iconic award, The Official Encyclopedia of the Yellow Jersey is a visually stunning and comprehensive look at all the wearers of the 'maillot jaune'.

In this book, acclaimed L'Équipe journalists Philippe Bouvet and Frédérique Galametz bring to life the 100-year history of spectacular sporting achievement, covering incredible stories from the 'Hall of Fame' including five-time winner Miguel Indurain, and statistics on the yellow jersey, the 266 race leaders who have worn it and much more.

This book includes:
- A preface from 11-time Grand Tour winner, Eddy Merckx
- A look at the rise of the British reign since 2012, with Wiggins, Froome and Thomas
- All the official statistics established by L'Équipe (the no.1 French sports newspaper) and used by the Tour de France, from the yellow jersey winners by country, to the 'National Firsts' - the first riders from each nation to wear the yellow jersey
- Photographs and biographies of all the successive yellow jersey wearers over the past 100 years, from the first wearer, Eugène Christophe, to the 2018 Tour de France and yellow jersey winner, Geraint Thomas

The perfect guide for all those with a passion for sport.
