Great book with many fun playful parts not what you would expect from a pro cyclist. View 1 comment. Aug 03, Shelley Baird rated it it was amazing.
A great insight into the mind and life of one of Australia's greatest cyclists and one of the best sprinters in the world. Awesome read that had me hooked from early in the book. It was that good that made sure I left it a few days between chapters so I didn't finish it too soon! Robbie McEwen's reputation as a 'competitive little bugger' and 'a bit of a hard bastard in the peloton' is well deserved. When he rode his last professional cycling race at the Tour of California in May , he won the jersey for 'Most Courageous Rider'.
Yet he is at pains to point out that what he has always been channelling is not rage or aggression but a fierce determination and razor-sharp focus. Here, in his own words, Robbie reveals what has made him one of the most successful road cyclists of the last 20 years, winning over a hundred professional races and three Tour de France green jerseys. From his first professional racing team, Rabobank, right up to his last, Orica-GreenEDGE, this is the complete picture of the inimitable sprinter.
In a new Postscript to his acclaimed autobiography, Robbie reflects on the successes of GreenEDGE, the fledgling Australian professional team that made waves by winning the Tour Down Under in January , to which he is now a technical adviser. Very early, he showed the traits of being a winner on the bike.
At the age of 18, he switched to road races. Robbie's plans to become a teacher were forgotten; our 'Kangaroo of Brakel' clearly had a future as a cyclist. Everybody soon discovered that he as an impressive sprint. Four years later, in , Robbie was selected for the first time in the Australian National Road Team. After a successful two years with the Aussie team where he won 50 races Robbie was ready to take the next step in his career. In , he signed his first professional contract with Holland's Rabobank and found a niche in Brakel, Belgium. Where he would meet his future bride, Angelique Pattyn.
Robbie was three times names Australia's Road Cyclist of the year and is still known as one of the fastest sprinters in the world. In , and , he won the prestigious green jersey in the Tour de France, the first Australian to achieve it.
He lives in Australia with his wife, Angelique and their three children. This is his first book. Edward Pickering is a cycling writer and deputy editor of Cycle Sport Magazine.
