The Break


For nearly 20 years Steve Cummings determinedly blazed his own winning trail in international cycling. A maverick who defied the dominant teams to record a sequence of gloriously improbable victories, he has lived and raced with legends of the sport – Cavendish, Wiggins, Froome, Thomas and others – about whom he has strong views and untold stories. This autobiography takes the reader from Steve’s earliest days as a junior, pounding across the flatlands of the Wirral, through his love-hate relationships with the British Cycling track cycling squad, to his series of top-level breakaway victories in the Tour de France, Tour of Britain and Vuelta a España and – rather than standout physical talent – how developing his own strategies and training techniques enabled him to succeed against the odds.
