'For those who remember his great exploits, and for those of us who had the good fortune to spend time with Tom, enjoying his effervescent company and admiring his tenacity as a rider, Chris Sidwells' Mr Tom will bring back memories of an irrepressible character, now sadly missed.' David Duffield, Eurosport 'All cyclists, and everyone who wants to know about modern sport, should read it. Here's a story of triumph, for this book is about Tom Simpson's life, not his tragic death.

What a sad loss to British cycling and the world he was.
He may have used amphetamines but according to the book only two references to this appear, maybe this was the start of the demise of "drugs in cycling,"
A truly great read for any cycling enthusiast and followers of sport.
