About the Author

Sean Yates is a former professional cyclist and head sporting director at Team Sky. During a highly successful cycling career, he became only the third British rider to wear the yellow jersey in the Tour de France, which he rode twelve times, before a career in team management beckoned. This culminated in overseeing Bradley Wiggins' success at both the 2012 Tour de France and the London Olympic Games.

Reviews

"A candid and unflinching account of his three decades in the sport, of interest to anyone who has followed his long and fruitful career. Yates is not afraid to pull punches throughout this autobiography and you have to admire his honesty... refreshingly far removed from what we have grown used to in many similar releases." * Sky Sports, Cycling Books of the Year * "Brilliant. This is, in many ways, an old-fashioned book chronicling the transformation of a cycling-mad kid from West Sussex into possibly the most respected domestique in the peloton, who also claimed a famous time-trial stage victory of the Tour de France in 1988 and wore the yellow jersey for a day in 1994. This book does full credit to an outstanding career." -- Brendan Gallagher * Sweetspot Cycling Book of the Year shortlist nomination * "A very good read... one of those rare well written cycling autobiographies that engages the reader... better by far than the other recent autobiographies that could be filed under 'British Cycling and My Role in Its Rise to Glory'. The whole thing has a charming, casual air about it, like a couple of old mates sitting down over a pint and reminiscing about the past. It's nice to be reminded why Yates used to be such a legend." * Podium Cafe * "Sean Yates is the real deal - tremendous determination, talent and commitment - the classic hard man from that era. In a way reading the book made me glad I didn't become a pro cyclist." * Cycling Uphill * "For years Sean Yates was by far and away the most successful British rider in the Tour de France since Tommy Simpson. Then came Cavendish, Froome and most of all Wiggins. After retiring from racing Sean Yates was to become Team Sky's Race Director and a figure central to Wiggins' 2012 Tour victory. A great and revealing book." -- Mark Perryman * Philosophy Football, autumn sports books review *
