The Break: Life as a Cycling Maverick

‘Getting in a break was my one chance of winning. The hard part was working out, again and again, how to make that chance count’

Sharp, resourceful and a permanent outsider; 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 of one of Britain’s most successful international riders of the modern era 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 Espana and – rather than standout physical talent – how developing his own strategies and training techniques enabled him to succeed against the odds.

The Break will be the first full-length account of the life and times of, in the words of ProCycling magazine, a ‘universally popular and respected rider in the cycling world’.
