Bradley Wiggins is a British sporting legend. He is an immensely talented and dedicated endurance athlete with a gritty, down-to-earth persona - cool, outspoken, respected, inspiring - and he has helped to bring track and road cycling to a new audience in the UK. With new material by Brendan Gallagher, co-author of the original edition, this is the story of a boy with bikes in his blood, of a son abandoned by his father, and of the journey from council estate to the very pinnacle of the sport. In Pursuit of Glory is a compelling, no-holds-barred account of Wiggins' rise to global success and an extraordinary insight into the world of cycling.
