'I can`t rate this book highly enough... it describes in a frank and full way  Bradleys diffcult personal circumstances and how he acheived the success he so rightly enjoys today. E. Mitchell  

This is the book of a geninue cycling champion!

The son of a professional cyclist  Bradley Wiggins first competed at twelve  and immediately knew that this was going to be his career. By the age of twenty  he had won his first Olympic medal  in Sydney  before turning to professional road cycling in 2001. Since then he has developed into one of the UK`s most successful cyclists of all time  winning a double gold in Bejing.  

However  it was when his team Cofidis was suspended from the 2007 Tour de France that he made his most outspoken comments yet on the issue of doping in cycling  and earned the respect of all followers of sport for his stand.   Wiggins is an inspirational figure to many: immensely talented  dedicated and cool  he has brought his sport to a whole new audience and was awarded the OBE in 2004 for his efforts.  

This fascinating and revealing account of his life and career reveals the sheer hard work required to get to the very top  but also provides a highly controversial insight into the sometimes murky world of top-level cycling.
