9780241969427: The Climb: The Autobiography

The Climb tells the extraordinary story of Chris Froome's journey from a young boy in Kenya, riding through townships and past wild animals, and with few opportunities for an aspiring cyclist, to his unforgettable yellow jersey victory in the 2013 Tour de France. A journey unlike any other in the history of cycling, Froome has crossed continents, overcome the death of his mother and conquered debilitating illness to follow his dreams and represent Team GB and Team Sky. He has experienced soaring triumphs, humbling defeats, a public rivalry with Bradley Wiggins and, most recently, the pressures of Lance Armstrong's legacy. Extraordinary, revealing and life-affirming, The Climb is a story of determination, hardship and unimaginable success.

About the Author :

Chris Froome is a professional road racing cyclist riding for UCI ProTeam Team Sky. In 2015 he won the Critérium du Dauphiné and the Tour de France.

Review :

"In this engaging memoir, Froome recalls his childhood in Nairobi, gives a vividly evoked account of his victory and doesn't attempt to gloss over the rivalry between the two Team Sky riders" —Mail on Sunday, Books of the Year

"Hard to beat for a top pro's perspective" —Financial Times

"Froome's story is an intriguing one." —Richard Williams, Guardian

"A brutally tough upbringing." —Paul Kimmage, journalist

"The key to (Chris's) success is his mental resilience. He might look like an unlikely strong man at first glance, but I wouldn't let that fool you. Beneath the surface there is a real fighter. He's a tough guy." —Sir Dave Brailsford, British cycling coach

"Chris Froome is an absolutely phenominal athlete. It blows my mind how incredible his performances have been." —Victoria Pendleton, Olympic cyclist

"Even though we don't see each other so much anymore he has lived in my dreams. He (was) wearing the yellow jersey every day and I almost felt I was wearing it myself." —David Kinjah, Chris Froome’s former cycling mentor and coach

"Just a few years ago we did not have anyone who could podium, but now we have two cyclists who can win the Tour in consecutive years. It is a phenomenal achievement and what Chris has done is phenomenal." —Sir Chris Hoy, Olympic cyclist
