The view atop the cycling world from the winner of the 2011 Tour de France   "My mind took control of my body. I had nothing left in the legs, but as a cyclist, you just keep going until the finish. I kept reminding myself that I had to get to the finish."   Filled with never-before-seen pictures and revealing insights into the thoughts of the champion, this book celebrates in words and photographs Cadel Evans's indomitable will and champion's heart. Evans's hard-fought triumphs and equally challenging disappointments—in the bicycle races that are thought to be the most grueling endurance test in sports—are a tribute to his strength of spirit. He discusses his inspiring and heroic battle to be the first Australian to win the biggest cycling race in the world, the Tour de France. This is a rare and fascinating look at the way a top rider races both mentally and physically.
