Ng the glue wasn't a problemMichael Hutchinson became a full time cyclist in 2000 after becoming disillusioned with an academic career Over the following six years he has won than twenty national titles and the gold medal in the Masters' Pursuit World Championships He is now a writer and journalist and cyclist and lives in south London I very much enjoyed this book I used to follow cycling for some of the times Hutchinson writes about and I have strong memories of the Boardman and Obree episodes I had also noted Hutchinson's name many times when reading about the domestic time trialling scene but I had been unaware that he had gone for the Hour record It's a great story and amusingly written Probably a 4 star book for me and anyone else with a strong interest in the subject matter but probably only a 3 star book for the rest of humanity But definitely a good read and I recommend it La France après Napoléon: Invasions et occupations (1814-1818) of the times Hutchinson writes about and I have strong memories L'Ame de Napoléon of the Boardman and Obree episodes I had also noted Hutchinson's name many times when reading about the domestic time trialling scene but I had been unaware that he had gone for the Hour record It's a great story and amusingly written Probably a 4 star book for me and anyone else with a strong interest in the subject matter but probably Napoléon, tome 3 : L'Empereur des rois, 1806-1812 only a 3 star book for the rest Le second Empire of humanity But definitely a good read and I recommend it
