A fine journey into the mind, body & sporting life of possibly the most impressive - and proud - racing cyclist... ever. Splendidly written, this book is a must read/listen for any cycling and sports fan. It offers a deeper than usual insight into winning with panache. Highly recommended.

My favourite cyclist (Sorry Eddy), Bernard Hinault never once compromised his beliefs and values, the last true patron of the peleton, as a neo-pro he must have been inspiring and terrifying to ride with. Stubborn and immovable, the respect he gained from his peers is well deserved, as is his reputation as a cyclist capable of imposing his will and defiance on the whole field not just his closest rivals. Fotheringham's excellent book (as are his other books) portrays Hinault how you would imagine he really is, proud yet disconnected, honourable yet treacherous, a true winner who cared little for the prize, but rather the means, there's no one like him now or before. France may not have to wait so long for another tour winner, but they will never see another like Hinault.
