Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of the revealing, inspirational memoir from the British winner 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 and life-affirming, The Climb is a story of determination, hardship and unimaginable success.

Where Lance crushed all hope Froome brings it back

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

I tend to enjoy audio books for the fact that I can continue listening while I get ready for the day and in the car while driving. I can't do that with the written version. The narrator has a very nice voice and easy to listen to.

What other book might you compare The Climb to and why?

It a weird way, Wheelmen, but that was all the bad and negative side of the sport this brings you back to the light.

What about Patrick Doherty’s performance did you like?

He has a nice voice that I can listen to for hours, and did

Any additional comments?

What an incredible story, a young man came from Africa, overcame all obstacles to become one of the greatest cyclists of all time. I love that he does some pretty dumb, but comical things to get where he is. And he can even laugh about his nickname, Crash. This book also inspired me to get out on my own bike and cheer him on to winning his 3rd Tour de France. Lance crushed us all when he finally admitted that he cheated to win, Froome gives us back the hope that it can be done without chemical help.

Great to listen to on long rides.

I loved this book, it gives a great incite to what is needed from a cyclist to ride in the TDF. Not only that Chris has a great story to tell. Was hankering for more when it finished. Fully recommend.

Not your average pro-cyclist biography

Easy listening human interest story covering from Froome's childhood in Kenya and his first interest in cycling climbing up gradually into professional cycling before take lead role in the Sky team and winning the 2013 TdF. A certain air of humility and his firm anti-doping stand gives the story huge credibility and he carries some dignity in some of personality clashes along the way and the media hype around the Tour, etc. I would recommend this to anyone interested in cycling and would even consider buying the book to re-read parts I may have missed on the audio when listening while riding.
