9780091932770: Boy Racer

Boy Racer steps behind the scenes of the Tour de France. It unmasks the exotic, contradictory, hysterical and brutal world of professional cycling from the compellingly candid viewpoint of someone right in the thick of it.

Written off as 'fat' and 'useless' in his youth, Mark Cavendish is now one of cycling's brightest stars and one of Britain's greatest ever cyclists. Some have called him cocky, but to anyone who doesn't like his style, Mark will simply shrug his shoulders and reply, 'I know I'm good. There's no point lying about it.'

Peers say that they have never seen anyone with Cavendish's hunger for success and while this fearlessness - both in the saddle and on the record - has at times led to controversy, it has also earned him the respect of ever more fans.

In Boy Racer we follow him through the mayhem of the Tour de France in a page-turning journey of pure exhilaration.

Review:

"Britain's best ever Tour de France cyclist" ( ProCycling Magazine)

"The hottest sprinter in the world" ( Daily Telegraph)

" Boy Racer...catch[es] the inner conflict between the impetuousness that makes Cavendish such a daunting competitor and the introspection that makes him such an interesting person" ( Guardian)

"Refreshingly frank and entertaining" ( Scotland on Sunday)

"Highly personal and revelatory and gives you a unique insight to one of Britain's most successful and respected sportsmen" ( Telegraph)

Review:

"Boy Racer - expertly ghosted by the cycling journalist Daniel Friebe to catch the inner conflict between the impetuousness that makes Cavendish such a daunting competitor and the introspection that makes him such an interesting person - winds its way to the top step of the podium from BMX races as a ten-year-old via spells as a bank clerk in the Douglas branch of Barclays and as a resident of the academy run by British Cycling."
