review 1: Boy Racer is an autobiography of the British (Manx) sprinter Mark Cavendish up until the 2009. The most fascinating parts of the book concerns his relationship with other riders and especially with the high mountain passes that he has to climb in the three grand tours. Mark appears to be just like you would see in his interviews - brash but very thankful and complementary to his teammates. This book is probably just for the hardcore cycling fan - unlike Lance Armstrong's books.
review 2: An easy and enjoyable read, giving the story of Cavendish's 2008 Tour de France with flashbacks to his career to that point. It's not a great work of literature but it's a good read for anyone interested in the sport of cycling. I agree with another reviewer that the ghost
... morewriter has shown deftness of touch in ensuring that Cavendish's personality shines through.Of course, Cavendish's career has gone on a long way between 2008 and the time I read the book (2013) but I guess we'll get a "part 2" some time. In the mean time, this is worth a read. less

A good insider's view of pro cycling from training to the teamwork required to win races.
The book is written like mark talks and behaves. I absolutely loved it. It's really honest.
entertaining if you enjoy professional bike racing, but otherwise probably give it a miss
Cool story about what it takes from a modern era rider
Awesome for the bike enthusiast!
