Description

On 22 July 2012 Bradley Wiggins made history as the first British cyclist to win the Tour de France. Ten days later at the London Olympic Games he won gold in the time trial to become his country’s most decorated Olympian. In an instant ‘Wiggo’, the kid from Kilburn, was a national hero.

Outspoken, honest, intelligent and fearless, Wiggins has been hailed as the people’s champion. From his lowest ebb following a catastrophic attempt to conquer the 2012 Tour and the loss of his granddad who had raised him as a boy, My Time tells the story of his remarkable journey to win the world's toughest race.

INCLUDES A BRAND NEW CHAPTER
SHORTLISTED FOR THE BRITISH SPORTS BOOK AWARD FOR BEST AUTOBIOGRAPHY

    I loved reading this book and it was very inspiring. Bradley is so honest and candid in what he says he was a joy to read and understand what makes such an amazing bloke tick. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand how the road bike racing world works including rules, tactics and the reality of a bike race. All that I needed to know to enjoy the sport more is embedded within the text. Buy it now!

    I had assumed that this would be a full autobiography covering his early life, getting on a bike for the first time etc. but that seems to have been covered by his first book (which I've yet to read). As a cycling fan this was what I wanted to read as I wasn't too bothered about how he started or some heartwarming rags to riches sob story, only his achievements in the past fee years, particularly the transition to winning the TDF. I'd recommend this to people interested in the details of cycling rather than those looking for a regular sportsman's autobiography. That's not to say that Bradley's not interesting, more the fact that he seems to be quite private and more comfortable talking about bikes and training schedules - which I found really interesting I hasten to add.
