The Secret CyclistWho is The Secret Cyclist and why all the secrecy? Every public aspect of our lives is so tightly controlled that being truly honest is all but impossible in a newspaper interview never mind a whole book You try write a warts and all blog about your office uestion how the business is run make sur The Secret Pro over on Cycling Tips has been a constant go to for uite some time now Its insight from the male and female pelotons appears on a very irregular basis so it can be disappointing when no article is posted following some big or controversial developments but as soon as one surfaces I click over immediately Of course part of the attraction is trying to piece together details in the articles to try and work out who is behind the keyboard but the strength of the Secret Pro is that the content is informative and well ghost written so that this is not the overwhelming focus There have been suggestions that it is the product of than one pro and their stories merged and the writer often clearly admits to throwing in the odd red herring to frustrate the amateur sleuths but no matter what the theories it is always worth a read it is just a shame that the dispatches from the SHEcret Pro who reports from the women's bunch are even rarer than the male one That lead me to this book which arrived with no fanfare last month in fact I came across it when browsing in a book shop next to work one lunch time I normally am uite alert to new books for example I'm looking forward to William Fotheringham's Beryl Burton offering so to just happen upon it was a bit strange It should also be clearly noted that this is not the Cycling Tips Secret Pro it is generally recognised that he is an antipodean whereas it is probable than not that the unnamed author here is European But you would expect a book based on an insider view of the world of pro cycling to have of a buzz about it particularly when thinking about some of the recent issues that most of us would dearly love to know what the pros really thought eg Froome and Wiggins' TUE shenanigans mechanical fraud DSs and coaches with links to the bad old days etcSo of course the obvious uestion who is the secret cyclist?
