Book Description

Dec 6 2011
The view atop the cycling world from the winner of the 2011 Tour de France
"My mind took control of my body. I had nothing left in the legs, but as a cyclist, you just keep going until the finish. I kept reminding myself that I had to get to the finish."
Filled with never-before-seen pictures and revealing insights into the thoughts of the champion, this book celebrates in words and photographs Cadel Evans's indomitable will and champion's heart. Evans's hard-fought triumphs and equally challenging disappointments—in the bicycle races that are thought to be the most grueling endurance test in sports—are a tribute to his strength of spirit. He discusses his inspiring and heroic battle to be the first Australian to win the biggest cycling race in the world, the Tour de France. This is a rare and fascinating look at the way a top rider races both mentally and physically.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book! Dec 14 2011

This book was great. The photos were amazing and they spanned his entire career, not just the 2011 Tour de France. If you have browsed through any of the Lance Armstrong picture books, this is very similar and just as good. The photos were taken by the same photographer, Graham Watson. Definitely worth the purchase. Very good read.

Being a cycling fan is not a necessity to enjoy this book. It contains incredible pictures, put together by year, from around the world.

The scenery is amazing, and the emotions that are captured in these pictures will speak to anyone.

This is a great addition for any library or coffee table.

My daughter is a huge fan of Cadel and was absolutely delighted with the book. She spent some time showing her niece and nephew all the pictures.
