100 years before Lance Armstrong became a famed American bicycle racer in what is considered a European sport, another American rider amassed fame and glory on the bicycle racing tracks of the world: Marshall Major Taylor. The first African-American sportsman outside boxing to become internationally famous, Taylors life story is one of the most fascinating stories ever told about any athlete--white or black.This illustrated edition is fully updated and expanded and illustrated throughout with over 100 high-quality duotone photographs.
