Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Euphoria does not last forever and so the race is always on to ensure that the books is read for those keen to know of to re-live the spine tingling moments of triumph. My Time is not at all the worst of this kind of output. Indeed, it might be among the best...there is plenty of fascinating detail" (Alison Rudd The Times)

"Give sports fans a glimpse into what it takes to win gold" (Closer)

"Fascinating...it covers most levels of Wiggins existence - cyclist, team leader, husband, father, son - during the most important years of his life, with the candour that has become his trademark...co-written by Guardian sports writer, William Fotheringham, who helps to tell the story in the direct but eloquent tone that Wiggins watchers will recognise countless radio and television interviews. It is an absorbing read that covers Wiggins' career from his departure from Garmin to his latest Olympic success. Cycling fans will relish the horse's mouth accounts of the triumphs they have watched unfold this year, while newcomers to the sport, attracted by the man's performances this year, both on and off the bike, should find more to enjoy" (Timothy John Road Cycling UK)

"If you love cycling, this makes a very welcome change from the rather saturated market of 'cyclist doping confessions'" (Cycling UK)

"What makes the book special for me is the love of cycling that comes through. His passion for the sport, for its history, his awareness of where he stands in the pantheon of Lycra-clad heroes, and his inability to truly comprehend his achievements all come across in waves. And in typical Wiggins fashion, he doesn't dodge the difficult bits. He talks openly about the latest drugs scandal and the unwelcome role of moral enforcer which has been forced onto him by his newfound standing as Tour winner" (Freewheeling France (blog))

Présentation de l'éditeur

On 22 July 2012 Bradley Wiggins made history as the first British cyclist to win the Tour de France. Ten days later at the London Olympic Games he won gold in the time trial to become his country’s most decorated Olympian. In an instant ‘Wiggo’, the kid from Kilburn, was a national hero.



Outspoken, honest, intelligent and fearless, Wiggins has been hailed as the people’s champion. From his lowest ebb following a catastrophic attempt to conquer the 2012 Tour and the loss of his granddad who had raised him as a boy, My Time tells the story of his remarkable journey to win the world's toughest race.



INCLUDES A BRAND NEW CHAPTER


SHORTLISTED FOR THE BRITISH SPORTS BOOK AWARD FOR BEST AUTOBIOGRAPHY

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The continuing story of Wiggo 17 avril 2013
Par Chris Wright - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
First off, if you are used to bland sound bites from athletes tethered to a short leashed media rep for their team, then this book is not for you.

Wiggo is known for voicing his opinion honestly and without much remorse and to the American ear/ sports fan this can be a bit off putting. However like his compatriot Mark Cavendish, they both have the legs and palmares to back up their mouth.

This book covers in some detail his departure from Garmin, which is covered more in detail in Sky's the Limit and ends just after his Olympic TT gold medal victory where he contemplates what might come next - i.e. a Knighthood, which he did recieve & accept.
If you've read any of his other books, In Pursuit of Glory, On Tour and Sky's 21 Days to Glory, this completes the package and story so far. This is a forthright and honest appraisal of an athlete in his prime.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An inside look into the fascinating world of a cycling icon 7 janvier 2013
Par B. Shulman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book recounts two years in the life of one of the most beloved athletes in Great Britain. From dismal results in 2010 to the heroics of 2012, where he wins the Tour de France, Olympic gold, and Britain's coveted Sporting Personality of the Year, and is awarded a Knighthood - Bradley's life is a rollercoaster and we follow him every step of the way. Through the twists and turns that is professional cycling. Through the emotional turmoil of racing with a team of equally competitive men and the betrayal and confusion that brings. Even though I know next to nothing about professional cycling, I was able to follow the gist of the action, and it is riveting. It's seat-of-your-pants reading. I bought this book because Bradley Wiggins fascinated me. Now, having read the book, he fascinates me even more, and I've become a pro racing fan. In literature, as in life, Sir Bradley does not disappoint.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A much more personal book than expected 21 décembre 2013
Par james - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Tour de France champion Sir Bradley Wiggins may be known for some of his crass language to the journos of the world but in this memoir he comes across as very 'normal' and open about the internal turmoils he has had to deal with in his rise to cycling fame. It is a good look into the mind of a man that few seem to comprehend and it also does a good job giving readers a taste of life both on and off the bike. The all encompassing nature of training for cycling's top events reaches far beyond just actual time in the saddle and Mr. Wiggins does a good job of explaining the pressures of success and missing one's family along with the expected Tour de France and Olympic glories. Refreshingly, this book does not get mired in the perpetual subject of doping and makes for a good read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting look into what it takes to be a champion 24 avril 2013
Par Jordan O - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Overall this book was very good. It illustrates the commitment required to be the best of the best. At the same time you can't help but hate Bradley Wiggins who seems to have gotten to the point of being very good without any of those normal sacrifices. Overall well written, at times somewhat repetitive (didn't I read that already??)
4.0 étoiles sur 5 excellent insight into Wiggins life and Team Sky 9 juin 2014
Par Daniel J. Connelly - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Very worthwhile read from Bradley Wiggins, focusing on his perspective on his training for and participation in the Tour de France and, subsequently, the Olympic Games. 2012 was an absolutely amazing year for Wiggins and Team Sky, and this book provides insights into the culture of the team which led to this success. I recommend it to all fans of bike racing.
