About the Author

Born and raised on the Isle of Man, Mark Cavendish became a world track champion as a teenager in 2005 and a Commonwealth Games gold medalist a year later. In 2008 he regained his world title on the track with British teammate Bradley Wiggins. After switching his focus to the more glamorous world of road cycling, Cavendish set a new record of four stage wins in the 2008 Tour de France. He won six stages of the 2009 Tour de France and the prestigious Milan-San Remo one-day classic then went on to win the green points jersey and become the winningest Tour sprinter in history.
Widely regarded as the most exciting and charismatic young rider to join the sport in years, Cavendish will be the most closely watched sprinter in the pro peloton in 2013.

Reviews

Praise for Mark Cavendish's debut book "Boy Racer"

"Brash, brutal, honest." -- USA Today

"A masterclass in the art of winning." -- Daily Telegraph

"You'll tear through this book with sheer delight and find yourself quoting bits of it for weeks to come." -- Podiumcafe.com

"Exceptionally well-written." -- TheWashingMachinePost.net

"Unputdownable." -- Sporting Reflections

There is, though, a lot in "At Speed" to make it a good book, a book about struggling with success, the difficulty of staying on top once you get there "At Speed" is the more introspective, probably tells us more about Cavendish the professional, shows more of what really drives him to be as intense as he is. Boy Racer might be a more enjoyable read, but At Speed is more rewarding. Podium Cafe "At Speed" reveals every facet of the man known simply as Cav Throughout the book you rarely feel that any of Cavendish s views have been airbrushed or, conversely, built up to either avoid or deliberately provoke controversy. He offers honest insights which are simultaneously simplistic and yet original Ultimately the joy of At Speed is the sense that, warts and all, this is the story of a rare sportsman. Velo Voices "At Speed" is a valuable book for anyone who is interested in an inside, detailed account of a top professional cyclist as he describes his take on his career and cycling.
