Something extraordinary happened on the "Tour" last summer which cycling fans will never forget and that was Geraint Thomas -yellow jersey and winning the 2018 Tour De France with Team Sky. We expected this would be another year for Froome , but as the Tour progressed it was will he wont he- it was feat alone to win a stage and yellow jersey but from then on we were on the edge of our seats.
Just who is this great rider, I knew a little of his Olympic accomplishments and being what you would call the Team leader of the Tour's right hand man (or domestique), but that for me was basically it.
This book is all about luck, tremendous talent and how Geraint came to win the 2018 Tour De France. It has elements of humour, shows that nice guys can win, tells the story of the tour from a different angle- from his wife, team Sky Dave Brailsford his Principle of Team Sky and of course the four times Tour De France champion. Tells the reader about this rider that we all thought last year we could not believe what was happening especially with the controversy with Wiggins and Froome a few years ago and should Wiggins have "let" Froome win.
This is written in a easy style of writing this will inspire anyone who thinks they may have cycling talent to go for it.
A really great read and thank you to Nudge and Quercus books for letting me review.
