At Speed: My Life In The Fast Lane

Our Price: £8.99

Mark Cavendish is the first British cyclist to win the Tour de France`s green jersey  the first to wear the iconic rainbow jersey in almost 50 years and our only ever rider to capture the Giro d`Italia points title.   He is the most prolific sprinter in the Tour`s history  and - according to L`Equipe - the best sprinter of all time. But smashing records and racking up victories means whole new levels of fame: and this has come at a price.  Living in the goldfish bowl  he has come under fire for his bombastic riding style and been portrayed as everything from an outlaw to a psychopath.

Joining Sky in 2012  Cav soon found his own sprint interests to be incompatible with the team`s other goals  while the expectations of a nation made his London Olympic failure hard to take.  In At Speed Cav takes you through the highs and lows of it all in intimate detail.

This is a take-no-prisoners account of life at the pinnacle of his sport  and learning how to survive in the fast lane  both on and off the bike.
