CYCLING expert Richard Moore’s latest book Sky’s The Limit captures all the gathering momentum of a road race team on the up-and-up.
This newly released paperback gives a fantastic, behind the scenes insight into Team Sky’s formation and its development with so many outstanding British riders helping it to earn wide acclaim as one of the best teams at this year’s Tour de France.
With the focus now squarely placed on highly respected British team members, including Tour de France contender Bradley Wiggins and World Race Champion and undisputed sprint king Mark Cavendish, this book is flying the flag with national pride.
The team’s thrilling, debut season is brought up-to-date with new chapters on the signing of Cavendish, and Wiggins’ remarkable return from injury to the form that has led to him being tipped as this year’s favourite to win the Tour De France.
Sky manager Dave Brailsford’s transition from his 2008 Olympic British track team successes to road racing has seen him drop smoothly and quickly into all the right gears and should Wiggins win the Tour this month, Bradley will become the first Brit to do so.
With exclusive access to the team, author Moore’s coverage moves from the team formation in 2010 and includes training camps and races such as the Belgian Classics, Italian stage races, the Tour of Britain and the Tour de France.
Ex-racing cyclist Moore’s expertise and knowledge is self-evident in the reading and after his successful first award-winning book In Search of Robert Millar and best-seller Heroes, Villains and Velodromes, he is clearly becoming something of an authority.
Harper Collins’ Sky’s The limit costs £8.99 and is available in all reputable High Street book shops.
