9781874739142: Mr. Tom: The True Story of Tom Simpson

An exhilarating account of our greatest cycling legend and one of the finest racing cyclist emanating from British roads told with unique insight by his nephew, Chris Sidwells. We travel from the cinder tracks of the industrial north-east to European glory, from the British club scene to a world championship and the yellow jersey in the Tour de France. An intimate portrait of an exceptional man, this biography tells us about the private as well as the public Simpson. Too often the Press refer to Tom Simpson's tragic death on the hot, barren slopes of the cruel Ventoux mountain, rather than his extraordinary feats as this most entertaining cyclist. This book redresses that balance.

Review :

'For those who remember his great exploits, and for those of us who had the good fortune to spend time with Tom, enjoying his effervescent company and admiring his tenacity as a rider, Chris Sidwells' Mr Tom will bring back memories of an irrepressible character, now sadly missed.' David Duffield, Eurosport 'All cyclists, and everyone who wants to know about modern sport, should read it. Here's a story of triumph, for this book is about Tom Simpson's life, not his tragic death. Brilliant.' Tim Hilton, Independent on Sunday
