When I was growing up we had a saying about cyclists: Strong in the legs, weak in the head. I discovered it's not true of them all. The very best cyclists are also strong in the head.
Robbie McEwen is a case in point. Possessing the right physical attributes just isn't enough to achieve over a long period of time - as he has done (you only have to point to the scoreboard for that: there's an impressive list of his wins at the end of the book).

Probably one of the better cyclist biographies I've read thus far. It seems to capture Robbie's voice and attitude well. Not too long in giving a good enough overview of his experiences. (I'm looking at you, Ricky Ponting and Steve Waugh for the opposite.) Probably finished a year too early though; would've been good to hear a bit more about his time at Radioshack (Lance) & doping.

A very easy read. Read it in just a few sittings as I was engrossed and just want to see what happened next.

A heap of details about what it is like to ride as a professional, none of which you really have any idea about just watching races on telly each year.

No nonsense style, just the facts. It hurts to ride a bike hard and Robbie knows all about the pain on and off the bike.

If you have ever watched the tour on tv, this will give a great background into what happens out there.

A great insight to the workings of the peloton, Robbie is at times shockingly honest and also obviously giving "his side" of events and incidents. Recommended to any cycling fan, especially those who have followed Robbie's career.

A must read for any Australian cycling fan. Actually, scrap that, a must read for any cycling fan full stop. I've been a fan of Robbie's for 20 years and it's fantastic to get all the behind the scenes info and opinions he has.

Five stars if you're a cycling fan. Interesting inside look at pro cycling from a rider at the top of his game.
Kerry
A blunt and honest look at the world of cycling and the great classics. A little Aussie fighter and a great sprinter
Jeremy
No holes barred account of Robbie's time in the peleton
