    This book topped my expectations From growing up in the outback to his achievements gained by some amazing grit and determination, it was very readable and held my interest right up to the last page Although seemingly sometimes a bit of a prickly personality when being interviewed, this book really explores the person he is and explains his focus and sensitivity that explains his outbursts from time to time I don t think he was a particularly flamboyant rider, but have always been impressed with his determination and refusal to quit What I hadn t realised was his empathy for people and the love of his dog who kept him grounded when he was catapaulted into the headlines and a top professional rider A long book that must have taken a great amount of time to write It is written well and deserves to be read.

    This is a great insight into cycling competition, and into the lengths to which one can push the body if efficiency and excellence is prioritised above all.I never knew Evans was a mountain biking world champion before he switched to road racing, and all the origin story information was fantastic It was great to see the parts all come together to allow a boy from rural Australia move to Europe and take on the giants in the cycling world.Of particular note, I really enjoyed the writing style of this book Evans maintained professionalism through most challenging interactions and even managed to find positivity in the recollection of the tough times in his career and life In current days where it seems almost in vogue to let the mofos fly, Evans shows mature restraint and always finds a constructive was to illustrate his response to what he s presented with.For me, the book slowed down a little when diving into deep detail of many of the races he took part in A take away for me was the preparation and race craft in the sport something I d never understood to the degree I do now that makes all the difference between winning the race and winning a seat in an ambulance.I appreciated Evans honesty and frankness when he was really struggling such introspection and personal reflection is often missing in sports books while the writer looks for others to blame, but time has allowed Evans to look inside himself and come to a logical conclusion without minimising it or trying to hide it.The book has made me want to go for a ride I don t know if I ll get to the hundred kilometers that Evans did maybe cumulatively over a year , but I do know I ll find things in it to enjoy and I ll be watching the Tour this year with a fresh set of eyes.Excellent work

    I ve followed Cadel s career from his Apollo days in the early 1990s, and I m so pleased this autobiography doesn t sugarcoat the tough stuff He is a unique character both in the world of cycling and in real life, and this book perfectly captures both sides of that character After than a decade on the road bike myself, Cadel s book has not only taught me some new tips, but reminded me to enjoy the rode Chapeau

    A very human story of dedication to the profession of cycling I am sure we have not heard the last of Cadel Evans life is what it is epitomises Cadel s approach to cycling and writing.
