Twenty years ago, British road cycling was in the doldrums: today it is at the top of the world, thanks to Bradley Wiggins's Tour de France win, Mark Cavendish's Road World title and the dominance of the British squad, Team Sky. Cycling has become that rare beast, a story of British sporting success built from the bottom up. As GB Elite Road Coach and Team Sky's Performance Manager, Rod Ellingworth is one of the chief architects behind that success. Here, for the first time, he tells the story of this amazing journey: the meteoric rise of both teams to the top of the road cycling world, and the four-year campaign that led to Mark Cavendish's historic Road World Championships title in 2011. With an introduction by Mark Cavendish.

“A Very High Opinion of Himself”

What should be a great book is spoilt by the author's look at me style.
