Good on you, Butt!!!

This book made me smile, it made me well up and it made me proud. At 53 years of age, some would think me to old to find new heroes but Geraint has been one for me for the past 6 years. Even more so after finish a Tour with a broken hip. So to see him finally win that Yellow Jersey makes life feel much better.
He is a typical Welshman; modest, down to earth, human, full of doubt but equally full of spirit and bravery. He is a true sporting hero, a boy from Cardiff who followed his dream and slayed the demons.
In Wales our heroes are sportsmen, actors, comedians, poets and combatants in long forgotten battles. We've now got a new hero - the first Welshman to conquer France on a bicycle.
This book tells the story of that race with wit, panache, truth and emotion. Geraint is the guy you would like to meet in the pub and listen to over a few pints.
