We're proud to be hosting David Millar at Bespoke where he will be signing copies of his new book 'The Racer'.
What is it like to be swept along at 60kmh in the middle of the pack? How does it feel to be reeled in from a solo breakaway metres from the line? What happens to the body during a high-speed chute? What tactics must teams employ to win the day, the jersey, the grand tour? How does a domestique keep going to the end of a stage when he's blown-up after towing his leader to the penultimate climb? How does a time-triallist maintain his form when every muscle and sinew is screaming at him to stop? What sacrifices must a cyclist make to reach the highest levels? What is it like on the bus? In the hotels? What camaraderie is built in the confines of a team? What rivalries? How does it feel to be constantly on the road, away from loved ones, tasting one more calorie-counted hotel breakfast?
David Millar offers us a unique insight into the mind of a professional cyclist during his last year before retirement.
Join us at Bespoke Canary Wharf from 1pm on the 8th of October when David will be signing his book, and again at 1pm on the 9th at Bespoke Gresham Street. Books will be available to purchase on both days.
