Beautiful and inspiring

This is beautiful writing about racing. It captures the ebb and flow of a race perfectly -- the long fast easy stretches and the terrible moments when the pack inexplicably rides away and you bonk. He mixes in a good amount of a young amateur's dreams and ambitions, the hope and the pain -- and the realization of the gulf between him and the true greats of the sport. It's an inspiring read.

Left me wanting more

I agree somewhat with the previous reviewer with the exception that I do not think the parts of the book dealing with Euro racing were uninteresting or poorly written. It's just that those stories have all been told before, while the story of the writer's own experiences as he attempts to upgrade from Cat IV was fresh and even more interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and the writing style and I hope the author will write more.
