Interesting look at the start up of a new professional road racing team especially for Great Britain which didn t have a large presence in professional cycling in the Grand Tours The guy who brought British track cycling to the top decided to go for the road racing world Sky backed the team not just sponsoring but pouring money into the effort to establish a British team Sky apparently supports uite a few sports teams from what I gathered The goal was a non doping team that could win the Grand Tours in Europe within 5 years They made it within 3 It was uite interesting reading of the personalities in the cycling world if anyone has watched the Tour de France these ae familiar names and personalities It is fun learning about them and their efforts

Skys the Limit Free read Ì PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Brailsford is the mastermind behind the phenomenal success of the British track cycling team which dominated the Beijing Olympics in 2008 winning seven gold medals But road cycling is a very different ball game It has the lion's share of the sport's history and legends; it has the bulk of the fans television and media interest; and it has far and away the biggest pot of money It is a sport that is rooted in mainland Europe—a land that is in so many literal metaphorical and cultural wa. When I first saw this I had feared it would be a fairly sycophantic account of Dave Brailsford s genius Wiggo s madcap banter from a fearless champion and the unparalleled wonder of the New Force in cycling But despite a good level of access this was a fairly even handed account of the early travails of Team Sky and it was interesting reading this several years on knowing what followedThere is a fairly detailed account of the formation of Team Sky to such an extent that the second half of the book moves very uickly in comparison However Moore s writing is punchy when needed and uotes multiple sources both inside and outside the team to give a full picture A bit like Tim Shipman on politics he would give both parties a right of reply but leave you in little doubt who was telling the truth and it wasn t always Brailsford What I hadn t uite realised was that Sky had so much money but were singly focused on winning the Tour for Wiggins and there was little comment on how other big budget teams still bother to compete in other big racesThis was also driven by personalities which meant that it was much narrative based and not just a list of results Moore is rarely explicit in criticising people but leaves clues for you reach your own judgement the brash Here To Win attitude at the start contrasts massively with the revisionist assessment of Brailsford after their first largely unsuccessful season Again it s not stated but it is apparent that Sky had assumed a new approach would lead to a lot success than was achieved although Moore does state in a football environment the boss would have got the sackIt is not just Sky s characters that are interesting however Seemingly every boss breaks the mould of cycling and everyone tries to paint themselves as the outsider other teams have less money than the upstarts but Sky are new so can t be expected to win Froome s subseuent success is barely discussed until the final chapter and there is certainly no recognition he could be a future starBrailsford obviously receives credit and Wiggins is no slouch on the bike But I was pleasantly surprised that this was not just a cheerleading book in return for good access and is certainly still interesting many years on especially for the relationships within the team early in the book Have a sick bag ready for the times when they want to inspire people to get on their bike though
