“Racing is Life… anything else before or after is just waiting.” It certainly was for Beryl Burton, the seven times World Champion and time trialling legend, as she never had a television or a telephone in her house. A part-timer worker on the local rhubarb and fruit farms, she remained an amateur cyclist all her life, a down to earth, ordinary Yorkshire lass, who never forget her roots and for this she was adored.
Narrated by Phil Liggett and with an original musical score, this new DVD features interviews with Beryl and those who knew her, together with very rare archive footage. In an intimate and moving film, the story of one of cycling’s champion of champions is told. Contains over 40 mins of special bonus features!
Amongst all the other new books released, Born to Ride, the first ever-full autobiography of the Irish cycling legend Stephen Roche, reveals the many ups and downs of his career; the victories, defeats, rivals, injury and serious family issues.
