From the Back Cover:

"Pure Cav--honest, outspoken, occasionally aggressive, imbued throughout with that trademark self-confidence . . . You'll tear through this book with sheer delight and find yourself quoting bits of it for weeks to come."
--podiumcafe.com
"Exceptionally well-written."--thewashingmachinepost.net
"Refreshingly frank and entertaining."--Scotland on Sunday
No one's faster than Mark Cavendish. Written off as "fat" and "useless" in his youth, Cavendish has since sprinted to the front of the Tour de France peloton to become cycling's brightest star--and its most outspoken.
"Boy Racer" is a page-turning journey of pure exhilaration--candid, opinionated, and scrupulously honest--chronicling Cavendish's rapid rise from local hero to National Champion to Tour de France stage winner. Along the way, Cavendish takes us behind the scenes of the Tour de France to unmask the intrigue, the mayhem, the hysteria, and the adrenaline-fueled chaos of professional cycling.
Vivid, unflinching, brilliantly conveyed, "Boy Racer" will sweep you up in the swirl of the racer's world and deliver you to the finish line with an insider's story from the freshest voice and most agile mind in bike racing.
Born and raised on the Isle of Man, Mark Cavendish became a world track champion as a teenager in 2005, won a Commonwealth Games gold medal a year later, and sprinted to four stage wins in the 2008 Tour de France. A year later, he confirmed his status as the world's fastest sprinter with a come-from-behind burst to victory in the Milan-San Remo one-day classic and finished the 2009 Tour de France with six more phenomenal stage wins.

About the Author:
