Synopsis: It was the biggest cycling team ever seen in Britain, supported by one of the world's most famous names. They took on the old school Europeans in their own backyard, pushing a huge wave of support and excitement before them as they shook the foundations of one of the world's most traditional sports. Then, on the brink of greatness, the house of cards folded. Now, for the first time, the full inside story of the Linda McCartney Pro Cycling Team is told. This is the story of how the most famous vegetarian in the world came to sponsor the world's only vegetarian professional sporting team. Hear about how a small-time British outfit grew so quickly they elbowed their way into the Tour of Italy, and then delve into the mystery of how a team personally funded and endorsed by one of the world's richest men could dissolve into thin air virtually overnight, millions in the red.

About the Author: John Deering has written for PROCYCLING and RIDE magazines and contributed regularly to Eurosport's cycling coverage. He was into his third year as the Linda McCartney team's press officer at the time of their spectacular implosing, giving him a perfect viewpoint for this highly peronalised account.

Book Description Mainstream Publishing, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. It was the biggest cycling team ever seen in Britain, supported by one of the world s most famous names. They took on the old-school Europeans in their own backyard, pushing a huge wave of support and excitement before them as they shook foundations of one of the world s most traditional sports. Then, on the brink of greatness, the house of cards folded.Now, for the first time, the full inside story of the Linda McCartney Pro Cycling Team can be told. Peaks and troughs, mood swings and wheel spins, millionaires and bankrupts, they re all there. You can read the truth about the stars, water-carriers and fixers that make cycling such an enthralling game. TEAM ON THE RUN is the unique story of how the most famous vegetarian in the world came to sponsor the world s only vegetarian professional sporting team. Hear about how a small-time British outfit grew so quickly they elbowed their way into the Tour of Italy, putting a fair few Roman noses out of joint before returning home with a share of the spoils. Then delve into the mystery of how a team personally funded and endorsed by one of the world s richest men could dissolve into thin air virtually overnight, millions in the red. Taking an anecdotal ride from the team s birth in 1998 to its spectacular implosion in 2001, you will be able to picture Sir Paul McCartney knocking out a quick Lady Madonna for the boys on his old joanna and David Mackenzie making the whole of Italy choke on its proscuitto and cabbage, until the boys limp home battered, bruised and penniless when the well runs dry. Written by the team s press officer, John Deering, TEAM ON THE RUN provides a revealing glimpse into the machinations and eye-popping realities of the cycling merry-go-round.
