Front Cover
Allen & Unwin, 2013 - Sports & Recreation - 208 pages
With major wins in the bag from its first five months of racing, Orica-GreenEDGE, Australia's first professional men and women's international road cycling team, has already made its mark at the highest levels of international competition. This is the story of its first year as told through the images of its team photographers, with words from Rupert Guinness, Australia's foremost cycling journalist. Taking readers into the heart of the team, this intimate behind the scenes portrait records all the highs and lows, the personalities, and the races won and lost. We'll learn how the team was established and we're given access to the training camps, allowed on the team bus, and in the team hotels. We're there as Molly Meldrum and Vanessa Amorosi record the team song, we're on the road with the great Robbie McEwen as he rides his last race. This is a big, beautiful, and revealing book that has to be on the shelf of every Australian cycling fan.
