    I have been a fan of Yates for years, no decades, from when I started watching the Tour de France when he was one of the few English mens actually taking part in the race.He has an illustrious career both as a rider and latterly as a directeur sportif of the Discovery team and for the Sky victories of Wiggins. As a rider he broke several records, some of which he still holds, including the fastest Tour de France time trail on a normal bike (since broken with dedicate time trial bikes) and when h [...]

    I know nothing about cycling. Nothing. I don't ride a bike and have never watched racing on TV. Not even the 2012 Olympics. After a careful read of the first chapter, I developed the teensiest understanding. The thing is, this book made me want to understand. It was a gripping story from first to last; a real human drama. It has so many narrative threads: the small-town boy done good, the mighty brought down by scandal, the sheer delight of physical ability, and the technical details of the trad [...]

    Great book. Sean is one of the best. I thought his chapter on his health,which he was most modest about and thought it was boring, was very interesting as some were as mine and it's interesting what they can do when money is no object. He was directeur sportif for Bradley Wiggins 2012 Tour de France win and his Olympic Gold Medal. He still,at 55, rides his bike, usually when most are still in bed, every day. Respect.

    Sean was one of a few British riders to try their luck in France in the 80's and succeed.This book starts before he started racing and covers his life in great detail.

    An interesting history of Yates. Tells all about his childhood and his cycling carreer. Really interesting stuff and great for cycling fans.He states early on in the book that this isn't a book for those wanting the dirt on Lance and the rest of the Peloton, and that makes this book a better read.But, I must admit that the writing style and how it sometimes jumped from Yates' perspective to a quote by someone else sometimes left me a little confused and i had to re-read sections to make sure i w [...]

    There are interesting bits in this book if you like cycling. It was written with no regard for narrative though so it's a simple, linear trajectory from his first race as a kid to his last one as he was older. He would've done better to group his anecdotes under common themes otherwise, as it is, it wasn't as engaging a read as it could have been.

    An interesting read about one of the toughest competitors in the peloton. Would have been nice to have learnt a bit more about the doping in and around the sport when he was riding but obviously his friendships and loyalty to his fellow riders means more to him than headline grabbing.

    A fine read. A life full of sporting adventure and a view into the inner workings of cycling over the past twenty years.

    John Pakey
    Really good read about how professional cycling has changed in the last 30 years. very frank at times and also interesting perception on the Lance Armstrong issue. Worth a read.
