'A must-have - yet completely fake - glossary of essential, though non-existent, cycling terms.' Find yourself confused, nodding along when a rouleur relates how le biscuit was effrite (crumbled)? How today they're feeling Angers (past caring)? Fear no more, for Boulting's Velosaurus will illuminate, enlighten and, frankly, mislead. In his Velosaurus, ITV Tour de France commentator and cycling writer Ned Boulting provides the ultimate lexicon of nonsense terminology surrounding the esteemed Tour de France. Featuring essential vocabulary like Alpe (an Alp), panache (riding with doomed flamboyance, conscious of the need to renew one's contract), moutarde (any race that ends, begins or passes through the city of Dijon) and maillot (a jumper, obviously), Boulting's Velosaurus is the ideal companion to all things peloton for linguistically-challenged fans of non-automotive two-wheeled sport. 'Deserves to be on any Tour de France fan's shelf.' Cycle

How today they're feeling Angers (past caring)? The author provides the ultimate lexicon of nonsense terminology surrounding the esteemed Tour de France.
