Praise for Heroes, Villains & Velodromes:

'This is an absolutely must-read book…Moore has cleverly used the very cogent words of others to paint a picture of real characters within a new order' Graeme Obree, Scotsman

'A cracking story…I couldn't put it down' Hugh Porter, BBC cycling commentator

'Like its hero, this book is the real McHoy.' Scotland on Sunday

'An excellent book'. The Sunday Times

'…an inspiring tale. And in Richard Moore it has a splendid chronicler.' Independent on Sunday
