Boy Racer unmasks the manic, brutal world of professional cycling from the candid viewpoint of the sport's brash young superstar, Mark Cavendish.
Cavendish's hunger for success and his sheer natural ability has forged him into one of cycling's youngest phenoms—and one of cycling's most accomplished sprinters.
Cav's fearlessness in the saddle and on the record has earned him controversy and the respect of his competitors and fans. Boy Racer brings readers into Cav's head as he sprints into cycling's canon of larger-than-life riders.
“Pure Cav—honest, outspoken, occasionally aggressive, imbued throughout with that trademark self-confidence . . . You’ll tear through this book with sheer delight and find yourself quoting bits of it for weeks to come.”
“Refreshingly frank and entertaining.”—Scotland on Sunday
No one’s faster than Mark Cavendish. Written off as “fat” and “useless” in his youth, Cavendish has since sprinted to the front of the Tour de France peloton to become cycling’s brightest star—and its most outspoken.
Boy Racer is a page-turning journey of pure exhilaration—candid, opinionated, and scrupulously honest—chronicling Cavendish’s rapid rise from local hero to National Champion to Tour de France stage winner. Along the way, Cavendish takes us behind the scenes of the Tour de France to unmask the intrigue, the mayhem, the hysteria, and the adrenaline-fueled chaos of professional cycling.
Vivid, unflinching, brilliantly conveyed, Boy Racer will sweep you up in the swirl of the racer’s world and deliver you to the finish line with an insider’s story from the freshest voice and most agile mind in bike racing.
Born and raised on the Isle of Man, Mark Cavendish became a world track champion as a teenager in 2005, won a Commonwealth Games gold medal a year later, and sprinted to four stage wins in the 2008 Tour de France. A year later, he confirmed his status as the world’s fastest sprinter with a come-from-behind burst to victory in the Milan–San Remo one-day classic and finished the 2009 Tour de France with six more phenomenal stage wins.
