Dare to Tri is the amazing story of TV presenter Louise Minchin’s journey from the BBC Breakfast sofa to representing Great Britain at the World Triathlon Championships.

'I didn’t even know what a triathlon was before 2012… When I took up the sport three years ago I didn’t imagine for a second then, that, one day, I would be able to represent my country internationally.' - Louise Minchin

What started out as a fun television cycling stunt culminated in BBC Breakfast’s Louise Minchin wearing the colours of Great Britain at the World Triathlon Championships in her age group. This is the story of how a newly discovered sport became a passion – and then an obsession.

Dare to Tri is Louise’s candid memoir of her incredible journey, recounting her rediscovery of competitive sport after nearly 30 years and her first tentative steps as a triathlete. In a story encompassing equal measures of determination and self-doubt, Louise has to overcome personal nerves, a brutal training regime, the odd bike crash and the occasional drama. Her adventure as she strives to represent Great Britain in triathlon is an inspiration for sporting late-starters everywhere.

This is a warmly written and wonderfully honest adventure-through-sport that will both entertain and inspire.

“Inspiring journey for the person who wonders”

Really enjoyed hearing how a couple of work experiences set off a chain of events that took this determined woman down a road she never imagined. An easy holiday read more than an in depth biography type book, but... More
