Customer Review

on 29 June 2007
A very good book on a very much underrated (in the UK) rider. Single mindedness and dedication to the job in hand is a facet of the great competitors in all sports. Ali didn't care what people thought of him and told them so too, just like Millar. I think that it is a shame though, that this aspect of his personality has followed him into retirement, because, as the book also highlights, he did have a very good sense of humour as well.

It wasn't just Millar who has been, as a cyclist, ignored by the sporting media. As this is being typed, the British track cyclists that have performed so well over the last few years receive few column inches or television coverage. It isn't just a "Millar" thing: this country always seems to prefer of focus on what is perceived as "interest" sports, even if the county does not bring home the top prizes.

One problem with the book though: Lucien Van Impe is from Belgium, and is not Dutch as the author repeatedly states!
