Product description

Review

"It's pure Cav--honest, outspoken, occasionally aggressive, imbued throughout with that trademark self-confidence...an absorbing read...But if (like me) you do harbor a certain fondness for the Manx Express, chances are you'll tear through this book with sheer delight and find yourself quoting bits of it for weeks to come." -- Podium Cafe

"Boy Racer - expertly ghosted by the cycling journalist Daniel Friebe to catch the inner conflict between the impetuousness that makes Cavendish such a daunting competitor and the introspection that makes him such an interesting person - winds its way to the top step of the podium from BMX races as a ten-year-old via spells as a bank clerk in the Douglas branch of Barclays and as a resident of the academy run by British Cycling." -- The Guardian

"Cavendish writes in a breathless style, brimming with emotion at every turn, that often seems to say more than it should. There are interesting insights into his views on drugs in the peloton and on coaches, teammates and stars of the sport. He is often disarmingly frank, sometimes too much so. Inspiring reading, perfect for the beach this summer." -- spoke.ie

"refreshingly frank and entertaining" -- Scotland on Sunday

'Boy Racer, is essentially a masterclass in the art of winning relayed through the eyes of a young, hungry and sometimes impatient embryo superstar with a penchant for entertaining industrial language. It is also highly personal and revelatory and gives you a unique insight to one of Britain's most successful and respected sportsmen worldwide.' -- Brendan Gallagher, Daily Telegraph
