    1. Book concentrating on Ellingworth's road coaching career (establishing the academy, working at Sky, working on Team GB) but all focused on the aims of a Worlds man's road race gold medal in 2011 and Olympic medal in 2012. Reading a book on Team GB techniques entirely focused on the road is interesting. Ellingworth's main techniques including: breaking down a goals into the different steps needed to achieve it, and then the steps to achieve those etc; strict discipline with youngsters and amateur [...]

    2. Rod Ellingworth's book shows the take on cycling the new generation needs and details the use of the now-popularized marginal gains approach to optimize cyclists' performance. A detailed count of his plan to set up the Academy, these pages reveal the way GB got to the top with Olympic medals & World Championship victories; notably with Mark Cavendish. A must-read for any cycling enthusiast who wants to see what it takes to be the best in the new era of pro-racing.Thanks Rod!

    3. great insight into the programme and planning that went into the first British world champion in over 50 years. fascinating reading.

    4. A really good view into a chapter of cycling history - Ellingworth's planning fervour had a strange positive impact on my own life. Hadn't anticipated that!

    5. Great insight into the success of british cycling and the dedication it took from the guys who didn't get the credit. A must for any british cycling fan!

    6. Very interesting, great insight on British Cycling start up however there is far too much Cav loving. It's basically another biography for Cav.

    7. Very interesting insight into how British Cycling became such a success story. There are lessons in here that can be applied to success in any other aspects of life.
