Boy Racer unmasks the manic, brutal world of professional cycling from the candid viewpoint of the sport's brash young superstar, Mark Cavendish.
Written off as fat and useless in his youth, Cavendish's hunger for success and his sheer natural ability has forged him into one of cycling's youngest phenoms -- and one of cycling's most accomplished sprinters.

Some have called him cocky, but to those who dislike his style, Cav will shrug his shoulders and reply, "I know I'm good. There's no point lying about it." Cav's fearlessness in the saddle and on the record has earned him controversy and the respect of his competitors and fans.

Boy Racer brings readers into Cav's head as he sprints into cycling's canon of larger-than-life riders.
