Publisher's Summary

The autobiography of a cycling legend that will become a much-loved classic.

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, Flèche Wallone, the Criterium International and the Giro del Trentino.

    "Excellent book!!"

    I've read most cycling books as I love the sport & Cadels to be honest, didn't jump out to me as "won't to read" however, as they say, never judge a book by the cover!! This is a great book & very interesting insight in to cadel & the pro ranks! Top draw

    "Strictly for hard core cycling fans"

    I am a big cycling fan, I love anything tfo do with cycling and have listened to most of the cycling biographies on audible but found this often hard work. Cadel is clearly a very private person but if you are going to write a bio you have to tell us about Cadel the person, not just Cadel the cyclist.

    He's one of the nice guys in the peloton. This book shows just what dedication is needed to make it to the top.

    Story
    "Good cyclist - not a good author"
    Would you try another book written by Cadel Evans or narrated by Alan King?

    no. The narration was fine but Cadel is not a good author. There is no flow to the narrative, huge chunks of time are skipped over mid paragraph and there is little ability to build a dramatic climax to races etc. He is not in the same calibre as David Millar as a cyclist and author.


    What will your next listen be?

    something similar


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    meh.


    Any additional comments?

    meh.
