These Guardian shorts are a great way to catch up on a persons career, pulling together all the articles in chronological order, and adding some linking text, to provide a reasonable and easily read biography. They also tell it in the language and context of the episodes they describe, as they are unedited and just as they would have appeared at the time they were published.

The 'Guardian shorts' gives the reader an excellent progression of Mark Cavendish's career. It is from impartial (though enthusiastic journalist) and we see the flaws and utter conviction of this gifted cyclist. His Olympic disappointments are painful to read about and his triumphs are genuinely moving. Cavendish can be irascible and at times and explosive but no one can doubt his desire to be the best - the fastest on two wheels. His record of tour wins is unprecedented for a English athlete (or Manxman) and his exploits are vividly recalled in this compelling series.

A worthwhile little purchase. Useful to read the early articles when Cav came was up and coming. Interesting little snippets about other riders too.

Could not put it down, written in the style of MC and goes at his sort of pace, flat out.
