The Tour: Behind the Scenes of Cadel Evans' Tour De France by Cadel Evans, & Rupert Guinness

"An optimistic attitude... goes a long way, especially when things aren't going well." - Cadel Evans, Paris 2010

From Australia's first Tour de France winner Cadel Evans comes an insider's account of the Tour de France and what it takes to win this most prestigious of races. The campaign to win the Tour de France begins the day the last Tour finishes.

A fascinating and insightful biography by established sports journalist Rupert Guinness on Cadel’s 2011 Tour de France, documenting Cadel's historic win along with Rupert's behind-the-scenes account of the Tour and what it takes to win this most prestigious of races; from the tactics and the challenges that they had to overcome to the crashes, illness, injury and exhaustion. This is the sports biography of the year and is not to be missed.

What are the elements behind a Tour defence? Will it be harder to defend than win? What will Cadel expect from his rivals? Can Cadel take the yellow jersey a second time?
