Product description

Dancing uphill celebrates one man's contribution to cycling history. From the Midlands to Los Angeles, Berlin and the French Alps - follow the trials and triumphs of racing cyclist, Charles Holland (1908-1989).

After racing in two Olympic Games (1932 and 1936) and the 1934 world championship road race, in 1937 Charles competed in the world's greatest sporting event, the Tour de France. Never before had a Union Jack vest been worn in the Tour. It was a gallant attempt but sadly a tale of bitter disappointment.
