The brilliantly told story of the cycling world champion and multiple Olympic medallist who is one of the sport's best-loved and most colourful characters

About the Author

After narrowly missing out on selection for the Barcelona Olympics, Rob Hayles won the first of 22 national titles in 1993 and turned pro two years later. He won Olympic bronze in the team pursuit at Sydney 2000, then silver in the team pursuit and bronze in the Madison with Bradley Wiggins in Athens in 2004, before becoming a world champion in both disciplines in 2005. Rob became national road race champion in 2008 before retiring in 2011 after 27 years of racing. As well as helping the development of a new generation of British cyclists, most notably Mark Cavendish, he now commentates and presents for British Eurosport, BBC Five Live and ITV.

Reviews

"Hayles is held in great affection and is renowned for his laid back and affable charm - both of which are evident throughout his humorous and engaging memoir." * Wheelsuckers' 2013 Christmas Books Guide *
"An excellent book, written in a compelling manner and a fitting tribute to one of the all but unsung heroes of British cycling. I think it fair to say that if Rob Hayles didn't exist, we'd need to invent him... Not only readable, but enticingly so." * The Washing Machine Post *
"Compelling... Hayles never gives the air of arrogance about his achievement - the surprise is how ignorant he is of his place in the vanguard of British cycling; every sport needs trailblazers who capture the imagination of the many and the respect of his peers." * Next to the Aisle *
"An impressive collection of tales, the story of many two-wheeled greats as well as his own." * London Cyclist *
"A great autobiography and a history lesson on the early days of the British Cycling Academy... he doesn't have the aloofness that befits some other riders and the story is more humbling. If I was Rob I would be bloody proud of what he has done! It is well written and has a nice easy pace (a bit like Rob himself?) A damn good story of a British lad who loved racing bicycles." * Headset Press *
