At a time when pro cycling has struggled with its image, Phil Gaimon has emerged as a refreshing voice from the peloton intelligent, humorous, articulate, and above all, transparent. As a college-educated latecomer to the sport, as an outsider who struggled to be given a chance, and as someone with the perspective to laugh at the absurdity of being paid to ride a bicycle for a living, Gaimon's insights into the pro cycling world resonate with a wide audience. His self-effacing humor, commitment to clean sport, and extraordinary talent have made him a bit of an everyman hero within pro cycling a rider you want to hear from, and know more about, win or lose. Velo magazine Having watched Phil race over the past few years we know he is a great, versatile rider with a huge amount of talent. Beyond that, he is also funny, smart and unique addition to the team. We think he ll be a great fit both on the road and off and we look forward to helping him take the next step in his career. Jonathan Vaughters, CEO, Team Garmin-Sharp An outspoken proponent of clean competition, Gaimon sports a tattoo of a bar of soap with the world clean on his right bicep, and he was attracted to Garmin-Sharp for its ethical code. "Pro Cycling on $10 a Day" is the story we all want to hear: a regular guy who rides from overweight amateur to European pro in a short time, finding his way and making the best decisions from the resources he had. Phil s story inspires hope in up-and-comers about what hard work can produce. If you listen, pay attention and surround yourself with the best people you can, then no dream is out of touch. Jeremy Powers, professional cyclist for Jelly Belly Cycling Team and Team Rapha-Focus and two-time U.S. Cyclocross National Champion We have discovered a light-hearted, hard-working rider with strong convictions. Podium Cafe I believed in Phil and he worked hard to make the best of his opportunity in racing. He lived out of his car, train

Interesting look into professional cycling 7. Mai 2014
Von Steve Hanchett - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Phil's book was an interesting look into the world of professional cycling. He helps to demystify the sport which doesn't have professional teams tied to big cities, draft days or a clear path to the professional ranks. The title is somewhat misleading in that you don't really read a lot about "fat kid." It is more about Phil's move from the amateur ranks to the elite level of professional cycling. I don't think I'm a prude but I did find the juvenile male humor overdone and unnecessary. I suppose it is a part of that world of 20 something males but older dudes like me have moved past that and don't find it particularly witty or funny. There were a couple of chuckles but the cover blurb about it being hilarious is a huge overstatement. Glad I read it. Happy it has a strong emphasis on clean racing.

Forthright...Sincere...Blunt...Awesome 30. April 2014
Von Paul C Messal - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
An unapologetic retelling of his journey through the domestic pro cycling ranks. Phil is refreshingly candid about EVERYTHING from contracts, training and paychecks to relationships, ethics and farting.

Pro athletes looking to connect with their fan base (and maybe sell a few books while they're at it) ought to take some cues from Gaimon...nobody wants to read generic rhetoric that is regurgitated in every cycling news site on the world wide web.

Real cycling fans will absolutely love the inside perspective and outsiders will be astonished at the dedication and determination required to race a bicycle. An easy read that ends much sooner than you'll want it to.

laugh out loud commentary from the perspective of procyclings rising star 25. April 2014
Von JHK - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The life of a Professional Cyclist seems glamorous to the cycling fans since all the general public sees are the world's largest televised races. The ridiculous and hilarious commentary of Phil Gaimon on how hard "from the bottom up" struggles are for most young aspiring athletes in cycling will have you laughing out loud. His book is not just for cycling enthusiasts, there is enough entertainment for every audience, because inside the reoccurring story of "bike race after bike race" are his personal accounts and commentary on the cast of characters he encounters. Buy this book, read it, and then thank me later when you buy another as a gift for your friend.

You made me a fan! 23. April 2014
Von kes - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf

I don't know if will read this or not but I wanted to thank you for writing your story, I enjoyed it. I laughed a number of times while reading your book and you have made me a fan of yours by the end. Throwing water bottles at stop signs, nutella at the massage, that's some funny sh.. um stuff.

If your a cycling fan and want to know what life is really like as a pro cyclist(what it was for Phil anyways) then pick this book up. I still can't imagine how any team could pay these riders such low wages for all the work that is involved but I guess they do. Its a pretty easy and casual read with some funny instances dropped in about what has transpired in Phil's cycling career.
Cycling always seems like serious business when you watch it on TV, its good to see a more personal side of cycling.
