My mind took control of my body. I had nothing left in the legs but as a cyclist, you just keep going until the finish.
I kept reminding myself that I had to get to the finish...Filled with sensational photographs and revealing insights into the thoughts of the champion, this book celebrates in words and photographs, 2011 Tour de France winner, Cadel Evans's indomitable will and champion's heart.
Cadel's hard-fought triumphs and equally challenging disappointments - in the bicycle races that are thought to be the most grueling endurance test in sports - are a tribute to the strength of his spirit.
His heroic battle to be the first Australian to win the biggest cycling race in the world, the Tour de France, has been an inspiration.
A rare and fascinating look at the way a top rider races both mentally and physically and succeeds.
Cadel Evans has made cycling history as the only Australian to win the most prestigious Grand Tour - the Tour de France.
