Cyclist Phil Gaimon, author of “Draft Animals,” will be in conversation with “local cycling guru” Seth Davidson at Pages bookstore in Manhattan Beach, on Friday, Jan. 5, at 7 p.m.
In the book, Gaimon pulls back the curtain on the World Tour, cycling's highest level. He takes readers along for his seasons in Europe, covering everything from rabid, water-bottle-stealing Belgian fans, to contract renewals, to riding in poisonous smog, to making friends in a sport plagued by doping.
The event is ticketed. For more information, visit pagesabookstore.com.
