This review is from: Riding Through The Storm: My Fight Back to Fitness on the Tour de France (Hardcover)
This book will appeal to everyone, whether you are a fan of cycling, football, or inspirational stories about battling cancer. Personally I am not a football fan, so my first real "introduction" to Geoff Thomas was seeing an interview conducted throughout the ITV coverage of the 2005 Tour De France. Having read all of the Lance Armstrong autobiographies, I was interested to see Geoff's story compared - and I was equally as inspired by this book.
Each chapter is titled after the corresponding stage of his 2005 Tour and contains a delicate balance of anecdotes about the stage, his football career, his battle against Leukaemia and some of the fellow sufferers he has met since undergoing treatment - done in such a way that it did not make me want to put the book down, or fast forward the discussion of your football career.
I see that Geoff is undertaking another Tour this year and he will certainly be getting my backing again this time round, especially after reading this... Chapeau Geoff!!
