Description

The World of Cycling According to G FROM GERAINT THOMAS, WINNER OF THE 2018 TOUR DE FRANCE

Like no other cycling book, from no other rider - Britain's cycling star shares his unique take on the world of cycling

Sit back or saddle up as double Olympic gold medallist and multiple world champion Geraint Thomas gives you a warts and all insight into the life of a pro cyclist. Along the way he reveals cycling's clandestine codes and secret stories, tales from the peloton, the key characters like Wiggins, Hoy and Cav, the pivotal races and essential etiquette.

Geraint Thomas is treasured for treating his sport just as the rest of us see it: not a job but an escape and an adventure. He's been with Team Sky since its inception, and is one of our most successful and gifted track and road riders, but Geraint reminds us that getting on the bike still puts a smile on your face and fire in the legs like nothing else.

Funny, informative, diverting and droll, this is a joyful celebration of the world of cycling.

    This is an excellent autobiography, excellently written as if Geraint is talking to you, afterwards you will view him as a mate. If your into Cycling you will appreciate every word, if your new to it it will educate you and even inspire you. This is the quickest book I have read, I couldn't put it down

    A great read. G gets down to the nitty gritty in many areas of pro cycling, but keeps his humanity and humility throughout. Helped to get me across the abyss that is Christmas.
  • Superb read, just sad it had to end

    It's not like normal cycling autobiographies, it's not a story (well it sort of is) but not as you'd expect. It's a view of the sport, from a humorous personality, who tracks the various aspects of cycling from being a young kid riding in the hills and valleys of South Wales, to being one of the current crop of star Brits who are making this great sport of our, great. It's a unique read and a unique perspective on the sport. With some really laugh out loud moments. Which must have surprised my wife whilst reading in bed at11:30 in the evening.
