WINNER OF THE 2018 GIRO D'ITALIA! THREE TIME WINNER OF THE TOUR DE FRANCE. THE FIRST MAN SINCE BERNARD HINAULT TO HOLD THE MAGLIA ROSA, THE MAILLOT JAUNE AND THE MAILLOT ROJO AT THE SAME TIME.
THIS IS CHRIS FROOME IN HIS OWN WORDS.
'Engaging, vividly evoked' Mail on Sunday, Books of the Year
'What Chris has done is phenomenal' Sir Chris Hoy
Growing up in Kenya, biking down mile after mile of dusty road, and staying in a humble tin hut, he developed a fierce passion and determination to win.
The road to Europe was long, gruelling and filled with setbacks - but it prepared him for teamwork as a domestique and then the leap to leader of Team Sky and a shot at winning the Tour de France. In The Climb, written with the renowned investigative reporter David Walsh, he vividly recounts the struggles, the rivalries, the battles, the comebacks. Finally he traces his path to triumph and his mission to help clean up cycling.
Inspiring and exhilarating, it will leave you ready to face your own challenges in life, whatever they may be.
In this engaging memoir, Froome recalls his childhood in Nairobi, gives a vividly evoked account of his victory and doesn't attempt to gloss over the rivalry between the two Team Sky riders Mail on Sunday, Books of the Year
Chris Froome was born in Nairobi to British parents. He was educated and raised in South Africa and now races for Team GB and Team Sky. He is undoubtedly the finest Grand Tour cyclist of his generation and is the first man since Bernad Hinault to hold all three Grand Tours at the same time. His escape on the
Colle delle Finestre during Stage 19 of the 2018 Giro D'Italia, that secured him the Maglia Rosa, was roundly considered one of the most daring attacks in modern cycling history.
