Team GB’s success and Bradley Wiggins’ Tour de France
Two new ebooks have been released by John White hot on the success of Team GB’s success and Bradley Wiggins’ Tour de France and Olympic victories.
These are “29 Gold Medals” and “101 Things you may not have known about Bradley Wiggins” and are available on the following links.
These will be reviewed in the October edition of the Journal of Cycle Coaching but we can say from our first skim through they will be well received. The books are written in a lively style and are packed full of facts.
Here are a couple of clips from the Wiggins book…
“In 2011, David Millar became the first British rider to lead all three of the grand tours – Tour de France, the Giro-Italia and the Vuelta a Espana. Wiggo’s capture of the yellow jersey following Stage 7 of the 2012 Tour de France made him the second British rider to own all three coveted race leader’s jerseys.”
Did You Know That?
“Prior to Wiggo’s gold medal ride the best a cyclist from Team GB had ever done before in the men’s time trial were the silver medals won by two of Britain’s most iconic riders: Freddie Grubb at the Stockholm Olympic Games in 1912 and Frank Southall at the Amsterdam Olympic Games in 1928.”
The 29 Gold Medal’s book is more eclectic and covers Team GB’s overall success and is also fact filled book to dip into.
