Matt Rendell tells in his book "King of the Mountains”, the amazing story of how Colombia produced a breed of cyclist capable of taking on the world's best: in the 2002 Tour de France, Santiago Botero beat even the great Lance Armstrong to win the time trial. Matt Rendell tells of how the first top Europeans to race in Colombia found themselves utterly vanquished by its endless mountain climbs. Our cyclists began in the 70s and 80s to make their mark around the world, especially as victors in the harder mountain stages, to become King of the Mountains.
