She was considered the “devil in her skirt” and “queen of pedals”: Italian cycling icon Alfonsina Strada made a lot of headlines in the 1920s when she competed in the prestigious Giro d'Italia bike race - despite the rules because only men were allowed to participate. The story of this extraordinary, courageous woman tells as fast as the wind: about her childhood in the Italian province, her love of cycling, her longing for freedom and an impressive career. The multi-award-winning Spanish illustrator and writer Joan Negrescolor presents with his colorfully illustrated picture book a plea for overcoming gender stereotypes.
