Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

In this engaging memoir, Froome recalls his childhood in Nairobi, gives a vividly evoked account of his victory and doesn't attempt to gloss over the rivalry between the two Team Sky riders (Mail on Sunday, Books of the Year)

Hard to beat for a top pro's perspective (Financial Times)

Froome's story is an intriguing one (Richard Williams Guardian)

A brutally tough upbringing (Paul Kimmage)

The key to (Chris's) success is his mental resilience. He might look like an unlikely strong man at first glance, but I wouldn't let that fool you. Beneath the surface there is a real fighter. He's a tough guy (Sir Dave Brailsford)

Chris Froome is an absolutely phenominal athlete. It blows my mind how incredible his performances have been (Victoria Pendleton)

Even though we don't see each other so much anymore he has lived in my dreams. He (was) wearing the yellow jersey every day and I almost felt I was wearing it myself (David Kinjah, Chris Froome’s former cycling mentor and coach, Safari Simbaz)

Just a few years ago we did not have anyone who could podium, but now we have two cyclists who can win the Tour in consecutive years. It is a phenomenal achievement and what Chris has done is phenomenal (Sir Chris Hoy)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Climb by Chris Froome - the inspirational memoir from the British winner of the 100th edition of the Tour de France

The Climb tells the extraordinary story of Chris Froome's journey from a young boy in Kenya, riding through townships and past wild animals, and with few opportunities for an aspiring cyclist, to his unforgettable yellow jersey victory in the 2013 Tour de France.

A journey unlike any other in the history of cycling, Froome has crossed continents, overcome the death of his mother and conquered debilitating illness to follow his dreams and represent Team GB and Team Sky. He has experienced soaring triumphs, humbling defeats, a public rivalry with Bradley Wiggins and, most recently, the pressures of Lance Armstrong's legacy.

Extraordinary, revealing and life-affirming, The Climb is a story of determination, hardship and unimaginable success.

Chris Froome was born in Nairobi in 1985 to British parents. He was educated and raised in South Africa and now races for Team GB and Team Sky. In 2011 he finished second overall in the Vuelta a España. In 2012 he finished runner-up to Bradley Wiggins in the Tour de France and won the Bronze medal in the Time Trial at the Olympic Games. Froome amassed five stage-race victories in 2013, with triumphs at the Tour of Oman, Criterium International, Tour de Romandie and Criterium du Dauphine leading into a dominant win at the 100th Tour de France. He won the prestigious Velo d'Or award for best rider of 2013 and was shortlisted for the 2013 BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award. In 2014 he won the Tour of Oman, the Tour de Romandie and finished runner-up in the Vuelta a Espana.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An amazing story 19 juin 2014
Par Daniel J. Connelly - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
When I reviewed Bradley Wiggins "My Time", which was really an excellent book, I gave it only 4 out of the Amazon maximum 5 stars because while I really enjoyed it, it was perhaps missing that little bit which would make it truly at the top of the genre. If I was teaching a class in bicycling literature, for example, I don't think it would make the short list.

That cannot be said of Froome's book, written primarily by David Walsh, which is really remarkable. The description of Froome's history, from Kenya to South Africa to Italy to Monaco (racing for a UK team) is an absolutelhy remarkable one. There's no way, simply no way, he should have been expected to have had the opportunity to become a pro cyclist. Yet a combination of crazy determination, miraculously good fortune, and incredibly hard work combined to make it actually happen.

A common reaction to Froome is "how did he come out of nowhere to win the Tour de France?" This book describes that. It was perhaps the most consistently addictive biography I've read. 5 stars for this one is no-brainer.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Surprisingly good, made me a fan of Froome. 15 juillet 2014

I really enjoyed this book. Was not a huge Froome fan before (didn't dislike him either, just indifferent) but after reading his story it's hard not too root for the guy. He had such an interesting childhood and for the reviewer who did not like those sections, I found them to be the meat and potatoes of the story. Hearing what exactly was going on in the tour with Wiggins was also very interesting. I want to read Wiggins account now so I can compare them although I'd be inclined to believe Froome's account. Also, the insight to how Team Sky operates is very interesting. I have no trouble believing that they would be very "plan oriented" and by design unable to switch up if things do not go according to plan. All in all, one of the better books on cycling to come out in the last year or so. Although he did take a few shots at Armstrong it was refreshing to read a cycling book that was not page after page after page of Armstrong bashing.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 lots of padding 12 juin 2014

I love reading about how the top pro's got to where they are and I've read Wiggo's, Cav's, Hoy's, Lizzie Armitstead and Micheal Hutchinson's works but this book bored me. If you want to understand that Chris liked keeping snakes and fighting turkeys then this book might be for you - the first four chapters cover his schooling in Kenya and then his err schooling in South Africa and then of course there are pages and pages on how to keep a python. I found myself skipping pages and pages of uninteresting detail of Mr Froome's childhood. Although he is undoubtedly one of the greatest cyclists the UK/Africa has ever produced an exciting read this is not.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 LOVED THIS BOOK!!! 12 juin 2014

I had a hard time putting this book down
It was honest, funny, and tragic. Chris openly shared the best and worst of professional cycling. And..gives us hope for a "clean" future.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent book to listen to 2 octobre 2014
Par R. Koehler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I enjoyed listening to the audio version of this book. It tells an amazing story of Froome's ambition, work ethic, training, learning how to race, and gaining confidence in himself. Froome comes across as likeable, an underdog who refuses to give up. I especially liked the blow-by-blow descriptions of the races, the strategy and the battle with pain and fatigue. Patrick Doherty did a great job narrating the book. One caution: if you are listening to the book while driving on the highway, it is best to set your cruise control, lest you end up driving much faster than you planned as you listen to the races.
