Golden Stages celebrates the centenary of the Tour de France. Sixteen writers tell the story of a particular Stage and show how much has changed in the 100 years - the bicycles, the roads, tactics and organisation. And what has not changed - the extravagant scale of the race; the mystique of the maillot jaune; and the courage of all who compete.
