The Climb
The margin of victory was stunning: four minutes and twenty seconds. The style was breathtaking: three stage wins, including a mesmerizing climb on the iconic Mont Ventoux. But the full story behind Chris Froome and his unforgettable triumph at the 100th Tour de France in 2013, which culminated under the lights of the Champs-Elysees, is even more remarkable. In The Climb Froome recounts his incredible journey to the top, which is unlike any other in the history of cycling. It begins in a humble tin hut in the hills of Kenya, where he stays and races as a boy through townships and past wild animals. Later, as a twenty-one-year-old, with few opportunities for an aspiring cyclist, he enters himself into the Under-23 World Championships as the sole rider and manager for Kenya's national team. Finally, after years of brutal training and a gruelling road to Eruope, he follows his dreams to represent Team GB and Team Sky, making the extraordinary leap from domestique to team leader. Only the second British winner of the Tour in history, today he is one of the world's greatest endurance athletes. Froome relives the key races, from Paris-Roubaix and the Vuelta a Espana to the Tour. He talks honestly about his teammates and rivals, revealing the truth about his public rivalry with Bradley Wiggins and the pressures of Lance Armstrong's legacy. And he describes the overwhelming personal challenges he has faced, including the death of his mother and his suffering from a debilitating illness. Inspiring and exhilarating, this is a story of determination, hardship and unimaginable success.
