Description

The much-anticipated autobiography of the greatest Australian cyclist of all time. Famous in the sport for his meticulous preparation and an athlete who prided himself on his ability to leave it all on the road, Evans writes about the triumphs, the frustrations, the training, the preparation, the psychology of the sport, his contemporaries, the legends and his enduring love of cycling. A riveting and forensic account of his life on the bike - from his beginnings as the youngest winner of a World Cup in mountain biking to the oldest post-War winner of the Tour de France.

One of only four cyclists in the world to have finished on the podium of all three Grand Tours (the Tour de France, Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a Espana) as well as winning the UCI Road World Championship, Cadel's autobiography is a tribute to a once-in-a-lifetime sporting talent. This book will put you on the bike alongside Cadel as he recounts the races and the moments that mattered - as he places in the top 10 in six Tours de France and becomes Australia's first, and only, Tour de France champion and first, and only Road World Champion. Be there on the road as he claims the points jersey at the Giro d'Italia and as he wins some of the world's greatest races - the Tour of Austria (twice), the Tour de Romandie (twice), the Settimana Coppi e Bartali, Tirreno-Adriatico, Fleche Wallone, the Criterium International and the Giro del Trentino.

About Cadel Evans

Winner of the 2011 Tour de France, Cadel Evans is arguably Australia's greatest cyclist but he is no typical sporting hero. A master of one of the most solitary sports, Evans has contested the most sophisticated cycling team sport in the world. Uncomfortable with media attention throughout his extraordinary career, Evans nevertheless became an ambassador for his sport and helped inspire the new popularity of cycling. Evans was born with an incredible gift - a physiology, an aerobic capacity, that from youth, set him apart from the rest. Alan is an Australian actor and filmmaker, who has been working professionally in television, theatre and film for over 25 years. His work has been awarded both locally and internationally. A well-known voice on Australian radio and television, Alan has narrated over 70 unabridged audiobook titles. When he gets the time, Alan loves to paint and his work has been exhibited at various galleries and art spaces around Melbourne, including the Victorian College of the Arts where he completed his Bachelor of Fine Art in 2006.
