Edward Pickering is a writer and journalist who is editor of Procycling magazine. He was previously deputy editor of Cycle Sport, and has been a regular contributor to Cycling Weekly, Rouleur and The Cycling Anthology. He has also written for the New York Times and Loaded. Edward was shortlisted for Best New Writer at the British Sports Book Awards for his last book, The Race Against Time, about the rivalry between Chris Boardman and Graeme Obree, and he was also the co-author of Robbie McEwen's autobiography, One Way Road. Edward is a keen fair-weather cyclist, whose mid-life crisis is manifesting itself in an ongoing project to run a sub-three hour marathon. He also loves to indulge his other passion, taiko drumming.Review:
"An insightful, informative and analytical look at those who have stood on the top step in Paris." Cycling Weekly "Pickering's narratives are cleverly deceptive; it's surprising just how much the author unravels of each winner's character... compulsive reading." Washing Machine Post "Throughout The Yellow Jersey Club, Pickering asks plenty of pertinent questions which he leaves up to the reader to resolve, which is something I like. It makes reading the book slower - Pickering's actively engaging you with the text - but ultimately more rewarding." -- Feargal McKay Podium Cafe
