Publisher's Summary

The autobiography of a cycling legend that will become a much-loved classic.
The much-anticipated autobiography of the greatest Australian cyclist of all time. Famous in the sport for his meticulous preparation and an athlete who prided himself on his ability to leave it all on the road, Evans writes about the triumphs, the frustrations, the training, the preparation, the psychology of the sport, his contemporaries, the legends and his enduring love of cycling. A riveting and forensic account of his life on the bike - from his beginnings as the youngest winner of a World Cup in mountain biking to the oldest post-War winner of the Tour de France.
One of only four cyclists in the world to have finished on the podium of all three Grand Tours (the Tour de France, Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a Espana) as well as winning the UCI Road World Championship, Cadel's autobiography is a tribute to a once-in-a-lifetime sporting talent. This book will put you on the bike alongside Cadel as he recounts the races and the moments that mattered - as he places in the top 10 in six Tours de France and becomes Australia's first, and only, Tour de France champion and first, and only, Road World Champion. Be there on the road as he claims the points jersey at the Giro d'Italia and as he wins some of the world's greatest races - the Tour of Austria (twice), the Tour de Romandie (twice), the Settimana Coppi e Bartali, Tirreno-Adriatico, Flèche Wallone, the Criterium International and the Giro del Trentino.

Cadel has an amazing story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Learned a lot about Cadel. He's able to explain so much. He was able to explain so much of the truth behind all the press coverage and stories during his racing. Thanks Cadel for writing it.

What does Alan King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He has the Australian accent. I feel like Cadel's talking to me.

for cycling fans, a great listen

Would you consider the audio edition of The Art of Cycling to be better than the print version?

Sure, it's long, but I didn't find it tediously long at all. The length gives Evans the opportunity to tell the story of his professional riding career in detail. Without that detail, I do not think the book would be nearly as good. Do you have to be a cyclist or cycling fan to enjoy this book? Probably. It IS, after all, a book about cycling (and a very detailed one at that!). But the book itself is pretty great. It's not a work of timeless literature. There are times when the writing is a bit cliche.But it is certainly well written, and Evans comes across as a thoughtful, sincere person with a true passion for his profession. He is also very fair to the many other cyclists (and non-cyclists) that we writes about in the book. There are no grudges, there is no defamation, yet he is candid and honest about his feelings toward and about others. I really learned a lot about professional cycling, also, which was a nice bonus. And, of course, the sections about the races themselves are fabulous.Highly recommended for cycling fans! Thanks, Cadel!

What about Alan King’s performance did you like?

Great!

Great bloke, worthy champ, good read (listen!?)

Thorough, insightful, interesting: just about as inspirational a cyclist as it is possible to be, with none of the introvert self-publicity of most riders’ biographies.
