Vicky Pendleton Book Competition
And the winners are…
The Golden Girl of British cycling opens up, for the first time, in searingly honest detail about what drives her to compete in a sport she no longer loves. Written with Donald McRae, 2 time winner of the William Hill Sports Book Award, “Queen Vic” promises to be THE Olympic autobiography.
Victoria Pendleton MBE is not your typical female athlete.
Admired as much by the weekly glossies as she is the newspaper back pages, she transcends her sport.
In 2005 she became first British female to win Gold at the cycling World Championships in 40 years. She followed it up with gold medals at the Commonwealth Games in 2006 and another World Championship in 2007.Arriving in Beijing for the 2008 Olympic Games, Pendleton was on top of the world. She didn’t disappoint.In an enthralling example of track cycling, Pendleton took Gold and joined the ranks of British Olympic heroes.And then it started to go wrong.
Feted by the press and the public alike, behind the scenes the cracks and strains started to show. Despite retaining her World Champion status in 2009, it was a close run thing and her shield of invincibility started to drop. Victoria was falling out of love with her sport.The sport that had made her was starting to tear her apart.
Between the Lines documents the considerable lows as well as the well-known highs and reveals why Victoria almost turned her back on cycling before rediscovering her Championship winning form in 2011, the day after suffering one of her most humiliating days on the track.
