Product description

Review

'Cooke's outspoken book, The Breakaway, is a compelling and salutary account of the price she paid for hard-earned victories from which many others in cycling will benefit' Guardian

'Frank and honest...The Breakaway is a book that will not only inspire all those who read it but which also asks some serious questions about the way society regards women's sport' --Women's Cycling

'Nicole Cooke's autobiographical The Breakaway is both a powerfully-written testament to the measure of that achievement by a former World and European champion on the road plus a well-argued critique of the barriers that stand in the way of women's cycling' --Huffington Post

About the Author

Nicole Cooke was born near Swansea in 1983 and became one of the UK's most successful cyclists, winning gold in the 2008 Olympics and then following it up a few weeks later with the World Road Race title. In all she won more than 70 professional titles around the world, including the women's Tour de France twice. She retired from the sport in 2013.
