Tim Moore shortlisted for Sports Book Awards 2022
Tim Moore's Vuelta Skelter: Riding the Remarkable 1941 Tour of Spain (Vintage) has been shortlisted for Cycling Book of the Year at the Sports Book Awards for 2022, held in association with the Sunday Times. The book is the culmination of a trilogy that has seen Tim Moore riding the routes of cycling’s Grand Tours, in France, Italy and Spain – this time in the midst of a global pandemic. As ever, there is much comedy and misadventure, but here there is a bigger story too, that of Julián Berrendero, who spent 18 months in Franco’s concentration camps before winning the 1941 race.
Now in their 20th year, the annual awards highlight the most outstanding sports books of the previous calendar year. A ceremony will take place at the Kia Oval, London, on 26th May, presented by the awards host and ITV’s chief sport presenter Mark Pougatch. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the awards, a Best Sports Book of the 21st Century prize will be presented to a previous winner.
