Mark Cavendish has dropped a refreshing read that tells his story about the world of cycling. Boy Racer: My Journey to Tour de France Record-Breaker is a book that brings to light the many facets of the sport. Cavendish did not hold back, sharing his sprint victories in detail.
In his Boy Racer, Cavendish sheds some light on the reality of being a professional racer. The book also reveals the struggles Cavendish went through and how he turned it all around to become one of the world’s top sprinters. Brutally frank and candid, Boy Racer documents how Cavendish used doubts and skepticism over his ability to fuel his drive to win in each competition.
Labeled fat and useless, the book captures how the young teen from Isle of Man took the world of cycling by storm. Cavendish has earned the respect of many and captured the heart of all his admirers by becoming a world track champion, gold medalist, Milan-San Remo champion and setting a new record for winning four stages in 2008 and six stages in 2009 Tour de France.
Cavendish currently rides for HTC-Columbia.
