9780224100465: Bradley Wiggins: My Hour

One man, one bike, one hour. The inside story of Bradley Wiggins's record-breaking ride

For 60 minutes this summer, the British public stopped what they were doing, switched on their radios, their TVs, refreshed their Twitter feeds and followed Bradley Wiggins’s attempt to break one of sport’s most gruelling records: The Hour.

The premise is simple enough: how far can you cycle in one hour. But it is thought to be one of the toughest events an athlete can endure, both physically and psychologically. Eddy Merckx, cycling’s über-champ, called it the hardest thing he ever did. Wiggins, like many before him, discovered the unique pain of pushing yourself as hard as you can for 60 minutes.

In this revealing book, Bradley Wiggins takes you behind the scenes of his record attempt. From planning to preparation, to training to execution, Bradley shares his thoughts on his sacrifices, his heroes, and the people who have supported him along the way as well as what’s to come as he heads towards the twilight of his stellar career.

Supported by stunning photography, My Hour is a fitting celebration of one of Britain’s best-loved sportsmen in his finest hour.

About the Author:

Sir Bradley Wiggins grew up in Kilburn in London. He won the World Junior Pursuit title before going on to win seven Olympic medals including four golds spanning four games, and seven World Track Championship titles. In 2012 he became the first Briton to win the Tour de France. He was awarded the OBE in the 2005 New Year’s honours list and the CBE in 2009, before being knighted in 2012. He currently lives in the north-west of England with his wife, Cath and their two children Ben and Isabella.

Review:

"For a book based around just one hour of Wiggins' fabled career, it's an incredibly detailed account, and also adds a great depth to what we already know of Britain's `knight on a bike'" -- Colin Henrys * Road Cycling UK * "Gets to the heart of not only what it took technically for Wiggins to get to 54.52km but, crucially, how his mind was as important as his legs and lungs [...] fascinating" -- Ben East * Observer * "A fitting celebration of one of Britain's best-loved sportsmen in his finest hour" * Bikes etc. * "A fascinating read." -- Matthew Syed * The Times * "From training to execution, Bradley shares his exciting story." * Cycling Weekly *
