Mark Cavendish holds his book Boy Racer

“You should read my book,” Cavendish told the assembled media after his Stage 1 win in the 2010 Amgen Tour of California in Sacramento last Sunday. “It’s a good book.”

I’m a little halfway through Boy Racer and I agree, it’s pretty good. The writing is breezy and conversational and open, though it’s a little awkward reading about his undying love for “Lissie” and her family knowing that he’s broken up with the girl next door and is now seen with the leggy Italian-Paraguayan beauty queen Fiorella Migliore.
