"he explores a new generation who have beaten poverty, violence and corruption"

Last year, Egan Bernal became the first Colombian to win the Tour de France – not before time, you might say, given that the sport is ingrained in his homeland’s psyche. Matt Rendell’s passion for Colombia is evident in this wonderful sequel to Kings of the Mountains – another of his cycling books about that country. Here, he explores a new generation who have beaten poverty, violence and corruption, and can now, via two wheels, tell a story of a more peaceful, happier nation.
