In Pursuit of Glory

Author:

Availability: In Stock

Bradley Wiggins is the son of a professional cyclist, and he first competed at twelve, immediately realising that this was what he wanted to do as a career. By the age of twenty, he won his first Olympic medal, in Sydney, before turning to professional road cycling in 2001. Since then Wiggins has developed into one of the UK's most successful cyclists of all time, winning a gold in Athens and double gold in Beijing. However, it was when his team Cofidis was suspended from the 2007 Tour de France that he made his most outspoken comments yet on the issue of doping in cycling and earned the respect of all followers of sport for his stand. Wiggins is an inspirational figure to many: immensely talented, dedicated and cool, he has brought his sport to a whole new audience and was awarded the OBE in 2004 for his efforts. This honest and compelling account of his life and career not only reveals the sheer hard work required to get to the very top, but also provide a fascinating and controversial insight into the sometimes murky world of cycling.
