British cycling is in an incredible purple patch at the current time and certainly in road racing terms Kenyan born Chris Froome is the real star. Winning his second Tour de France in 2015 after the disappointment of injury the year before Froome has established himself as the rider to beat on the road. This book, written alongside award winning journalist David Walsh, tells Froome’s story from life riding on Kenya’s dusty roads to helping Sir Bradley Wiggins win his yellow jersey and of course his own double success in cycling’s most famous competition. A real personal touch is noticeable and this makes it a more engaging sporting memoir than most. Any cycling fan will enjoy hearing more from inside the team and about the challenges faced by the pro-cyclist. A fascinating ride through a racer’s life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In this engaging memoir, Froome recalls his childhood in Nairobi, gives a vividly evoked account of his victory and doesn't attempt to gloss over the rivalry between the two Team Sky riders * Mail on Sunday, Books of the Year *
Hard to beat for a top pro's perspective * Financial Times *
Froome's story is an intriguing one -- Richard Williams * Guardian *
A brutally tough upbringing -- Paul Kimmage
The key to (Chris's) success is his mental resilience. He might look like an unlikely strong man at first glance, but I wouldn't let that fool you. Beneath the surface there is a real fighter. He's a tough guy -- Sir Dave Brailsford
Chris Froome is an absolutely phenominal athlete. It blows my mind how incredible his performances have been -- Victoria Pendleton
Even though we don't see each other so much anymore he has lived in my dreams. He (was) wearing the yellow jersey every day and I almost felt I was wearing it myself -- David Kinjah, Chris Froome's former cycling mentor and coach, Safari Simbaz
Just a few years ago we did not have anyone who could podium, but now we have two cyclists who can win the Tour in consecutive years. It is a phenomenal achievement and what Chris has done is phenomenal -- Sir Chris Hoy
