Description

Swim, Bike, Run - The ultimate guide to triathlon by Olympics heroes Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee A Number One Bestseller. This is the story of how two skinny lads from west Yorkshire became the best triathletes in the world. Meet the Brownlees: Olympic Champion Alistair, World Champion Jonny. Brothers, training partners, rivals. They have obliterated the competition and set new standards for swimming, biking and running. In this revealing, often very funny book they take us inside their world.

This book will appeal to readers of cycling and running books like Mark Cavendish's Boy Racer and Running with the Kenyans, as well as fans of Chrissie Wellington's A Life Without Limits and Andy Beckett's Can't Swim, Can't Bike, Can't Run.
