The autobiography of Bradley Wiggins, the first British rider to have won the Tour de France and a record-equaling seven-time Olympic medalist, updated in 2012 with new material by Brendan Gallagher, co-author of the original 2008 edition.
Bradley Wiggins is a British sporting legend. Not only has he won seven World Track Championships and a record-equaling seven Olympic medals, including double-gold in Beijing in 2008 and gold in the time trial in London in 2012, he is the first Briton to have won cycling s ultimate prize, the Tour de France.
He is an immensely talented and dedicated endurance athlete with a gritty, down-to-earth persona - cool, outspoken, respected, inspiring - and he has helped to bring track and road cycling to a new audience in the UK.
With new material by Brendan Gallagher, co-author of the original edition, this is the story of a boy with bikes in his blood, of a son abandoned by his father and of the journey from council estate to the very pinnacle of the sport. IN PURSUIT OF GLORY is a compelling, no-holds-barred account of Wiggins' rise to global success and an extraordinary insight into the world of cycling.
