4.0 out of 5 stars The Jean de Gribaldy show, 6 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hunger: Sean Kelly: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
Kelly legendary hardness is matched by his understated commentary and dry wit. Running through his writing is his humility - he is no big shot or grandstander. Theres not a hint of cockiness - but always some self doubt - in his descriptions of races that from the outside he looked nailed on to win and was the favourite. His Vuelta win and Liege-Bastogne-Liege win (the latter where he tactically outmanoeuvres his own team mates Rooks and Theunise) are recalled in great detail. Everything he achieved was built natural ability, guile and most of all hard graft.

The book is unputdownable until the death of DS and mentor Jean de Gribaldy - a larger than life character whose old school methods and bare faced cheek could probably have filled another book. Nevertheless a great read and a must have for anybody who lived through the greatest cycling decade ever - the 80s.
