Bruno Schull - The Long Season: One Year of Bicycle Road Racing in California

The Long Season: One Year of Bicycle Road Racing in California by Bruno Schull

SUMMARY: About half the book is author watching European bike racing on TV.

I thought this book might be interesting as I have been considering trying to do a few local bike races myself. I bought the book because it was supposedly about the author racing in amateur bike races in the California circuit. But about half the book is him sitting in a bar watching the Tour De France, and describing the race blow by blow. Then there is some more stuff about his love life that doesn’t add much to the book. He does actually write about some of his own racing experiences as he tries to earn enough points to move up to the next racing division. I would have liked to have read more about his own racing than his descriptions of the Tour De France. There are already a ton of book about the Tour De France by people who were actually there.
