'Engaging, vividly evoked' Mail on Sunday, Books of the Year

'What Chris has done is phenomenal' Sir Chris Hoy

Growing up in Kenya, biking down mile after mile of dusty road, and staying in a humble tin hut, he developed a fierce passion and determination to win.

The road to Europe was long, gruelling and filled with setbacks - but it prepared him for teamwork as a domestique and then the leap to leader of Team Sky and a shot at winning the Tour de France. In The Climb, written with the renowned investigative reporter David Walsh, he vividly recounts the struggles, the rivalries, the battles, the comebacks. Finally he traces his path to triumph and his mission to help clean up cycling.

Inspiring and exhilarating, it will leave you ready to face your own challenges in life, whatever they may be.
