Procycling - - Prologue -

Writ­ten by one of the UK’s finest time tri­al­lists, Faster opens with the au­thor ad­mit­ting to sleep­ing in an oxy­gen tent in a bid to boost his speed. He goes on to ex­am­ine what it takes to go fast, from both his own per­spec­tive and through in­ter­views with fel­low pros. He looks at the phys­i­ol­ogy that gives rid­ers the edge, their ob­ses­sional traits and the men­tal re­silience that keeps them from cracking un­der pres­sure.
