New, 40 comments

Serge Laget's Tour de France: Official 100th Race Anniversary Edition - written with assistance from Francois Laget, Philippe Cazaban and Gilles Montgermont - tells the history of the Tour's first one hundred editions in words and via some of the best images from L'Équipe's photographic archive.

Published in the UK by Quercus you can find a selection of images from the book here and more information about the book on the Quercus website (we'll be reviewing the book on the Café Bookshelf nearer the race itself).

Before that, though, we're giving you a chance to win a copy of the book for yourself.

What have you got to do? Simply post a comment below, or on Twitter using the hash-tag #PdCBookComp. All entries - here and from Twitter - will go in the hat and the first one drawn out will get sent a copy of the book.

If that's too easy and you want to complicate life, see if you can come up with a witty caption for this pic from the 1928 Tour, one of my fave in the book:

Entries close Thursday, May 2nd, nine pm British Summer Time. Winners name will be posted here and on Twitter. Usual rules apply, judge's decision final and - unlike the Tour - we promise not to rob you of your victory years after the fact and demand the book back.

Find out more about the book from the Quercus website.
