5.0 out of 5 stars A winer just like Mark Cavendish
If youve read his previous book Boy Racer, youll know what to expect, truth and honesty from a great cyclist and nice person, some would say challengening, its an honest appraisal of the world of cycling the riders and management.

5.0 out of 5 stars A winer just like Mark Cavendish, 30 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: At Speed (Hardcover)
If youve read his previous book Boy Racer, youll know what to expect, truth and honesty from a great cyclist and nice person, some would say challengening, its an honest appraisal of the world of cycling the riders and management.

One thing comes over in the books is that he likes people, and always thanks them, something missing in a lot of people nowadays, he has an easy to read writing skill and makes even the most boring of subjects come alive some how,not that cycling is boring, the problem with this book is its so engrossing and actually stops you going out on the bike for a ride , you think ill just read that page then another pops up and you read that,and before long its the book.

Even for non cyclists its a good read as it covers personalities, and travel along with other things that happen in life like relationships with workmates.

If you do buy this book buy a spare as youre sure to have people wanting to borrow the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly open and honest self-appraisal, 3 Sep 2014

This review is from: At Speed (Kindle Edition)
An excellent insight into the life and mind of an amazing winner. Cavendish provides a refreshingly open and honest appraisal of his character, and is not afraid to bare his soul, warts and all. This makes the book believable, and human. I'd recommend this book for both cycling enthusiasts and those just interested in what makes a sporting champion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read. He might still be a tool in my book though..., 7 Aug 2014

This review is from: At Speed (Kindle Edition)
A very well written account of much of Cavendish's career, with great insight into his mindset and general racing philosophies. If you already like the guy then this certainly won't change your opinion, but if like me you were a little unsure about his fiery personality you may find that this book only ruffles your feathers that little bit more when you hear some of his excuses for not performing. On the whole though, a great read and a good ambassador for cycling.

5.0 out of 5 stars chapter 2 if "Boy racer", 16 Nov 2013

This review is from: At Speed (Kindle Edition)
No astounding revelations but still a good document of Cav between 2009 & 2013. I'm glad he released it now because I got to read it but it might've made for a better, more complete story if he'd waited till retirement to write it.
