The most anticipated sports autobiography of the year from Britain's most exciting athlete. Mark Cavendish is quite simply the most exciting thing in world cycling. With his self-belief and smouldering competitive fire, Cav has turned the animalistic hunger to win into an art form. Cycling bible L''Equipe has responded to his staggering success by naming him the best sprinter in the history of Tour de France. In "Boy Racer," published by Ebury in 2009, Cav told of his early years, culminating in his first experiences of the Tour. Since then his career has advanced at a lightning pace. He has clocked up another three record-breaking years in the Tour, becoming the first Brit to win a jersey in 25 years and the first ever to win green; sailing to final-stage victory on the Champs-Elysees for an unheard of four consecutive years. He won green in Spain's Vuelta in 2010 and spent the 2012 season in the World Champion's rainbow jersey; making him the first British cyclist in 50 years since Tom Simpson to win the World Championship road race. As well as being one of Britain's most successful sportsmen he's also the most popular, winning half the votes to become the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year in 2011. But no one has ever claimed that being one of cycling's elite is easy. In 2012 Cav joined Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome at Team Sky. Still relentlessly ambitious, he had to learn his role within this hugely talented team, even at the expense of his own individual interests. And despite Team Sky's success at the 2012 Tour, Cav had to contain his disappointment when events conspired against them in the Olympic Road race a month later. "Cav" tells his very personal story of the journey to the top, and gets to the heart of the pain and the passion, and the guts and the glory of professional cycling.

"Ultimately the joy of At Speed is the sense that, warts and all, this is the story of a rare sportsman.who isn't afraid to speak his mind rather than trot out the banal, PR-groomed soundbites of so many of his peers . this book speaks to both the heart and the mind of true cycling fans" (Velo Voices)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr interessantes Buch 27. Februar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Das Buch ist deutlich besser geschrieben als "Boy Racer". Man erfährt viel über Persönlichkeit von Mark Cavendish und über Hintergrund von seine großen Siege und Niederlagen.

3.0 von 5 Sternen meh 14. Januar 2014
Von Michael Smith - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Mark Cavendish is certainly a colorful character in the Pro Peleton. His book is an interesting commentary on how he experienced many of the more famous incidents and media stories of the past few years. That he is emotional and perhaps does not think before he speaks is well known; as is his effusive praise for his team mates when he wins. He genuinely seems to be a nice person and it comes through in the stories he tells in this book. However, I found a theme of "the media didn't get the story right and here's what really happened" a little overused. I'm not sure if he is trying to correct the record, spin the events in a more positive light or merely discuss them from his own personal perspective but the end result is a feeling of repetitive "woe is me" stories

Overall, there were some good stories and things I learned that made me glad to have read the book but if you have the opportunity, borrow it. Don't buy it unless you are hardcore cycling fan.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the Better Cycling 'Selfie' Books 4. Februar 2014
Von G. Berger - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Mark Cavendish, with journalist Daniel Friebe (who really should be credited on the cover), has written a very interesting and entertaining book about what it's like being one of the fastest sprinters in cycling. Mr. Cavendish has a reputation as being one of the 'bad boys' of cycling to complement his well-deserved reputation as a superlative sprinter. Reading this book has softened my opinion of him somewhat as hearing his side of the story paints a fuller picture of the man. That said, it's obvious that he does not see certain things the way most of us do. The most glaring example of this is his account of his famous crash with Heinrich Haussler at the Tour de Suisse in 2010. From his (Mark's) description of the crash it seems perfectly obvious that Cavendish is at fault. Looking at videos of the crash seems to confirm this. Haussler, head down, is driving for the finish and holding a straight line while Cavendish crosses from the right side to crash right into him. Yet somehow Cavendish concludes that it was Haussler who was at fault for not seeing him and giving him room. Oh well, what can I say. On the other hand, throughout the book Cavendish is very frank and open about himself and his good/bad points, and comes across in total as a much more likable chap that I expected. I found myself liking him more and more in spite of his blind spots. He's lavish in praising his teammates, which is nice to see. He also dispenses criticism freely, but it seems to be deserved. He gives the impression of speaking freely and not holding anything back which leads to a feeling of authenticity.
In sum, this is a very enjoyable book. Cavendish devotes a good amount of time to describing in detail how he and his team approached races and stages of races, and what went wrong or right in executing their strategies. This is the kind of information I like to read, and there is plenty of it in this book.

If you read 'Boy Racer', Mark's first book and liked it, you will like this just well. I only hope he will continue to write his new books on his brilliant career.

Anyone interested in cycling can read this. Very honest and a bit of inside detail which the public does not get to see or know about. I read Boy racer also, so this was a nice and good follow up and you can clearly see how he has grown as a person. It was nicely written and never got boring. An interesting read indeed. Good luck Cav!
