  6. Despite the howling protests from his peers, no one's ever been more willing to spill the beans on what it's really like inside the pro cycling peloton than the sarcastic scribe Phil Gaimon. Building on the outrageous success of his hilarious 2014 debut, Pro Cycling on $10 a Day: From Fat Kid to Euro Pro, Gaimon gathers the absolute gems from his monthly Q&A feature column in VeloNews magazine into his new book, adding a dose of fresh commentary and even more acerbic and sharp-eyed insights. With six years of material to work with - including his incredible rise into the pro ranks, the devastating loss of his contract for 2015, and his bold return to the Big League - Gaimon covers every possible topic from the team dinner table to the toilet with plenty of stops along the way. Gaimon offers wise-ass (and sometimes earnest) answers to fan questions like: * How much chamois cream should I use? * I've started shaving my legs. How can I be accepted by my friends? * What do you do to protect yourself when you know you're about to crash? * How many bikes does my husband really need? * What's the best victory celebration? Do you practice yours? * In women's cycling, what is the proper definition of a pro? * What do you say to someone if they honk or almost hit you? * Do you name your bikes? * What do pros think when they see a recreational cyclist in a full pro kit or riding a pro-level bike? * Can you take your bike apart and put it back together? * How bad does the weather have to be to call off a training ride? * How do you know when it's time to change a tire? * When you're in a breakaway all day, do riders form a future friendship? * Riders keep complaining about 'unsafe' weather at races. When did pro cyclists turn into such wussies? * How do the pros define a 'crash'? Gaimon wields his outsider's wit to cast a cock-eyed gaze at the peculiar manners, mores, and traditions that make the medieval sport of cycling so irresistible to watch. Ask a Pro includes new res

  7. ‘[Karnazes’] spirited memoir . . . can help mere mortals who want to push past their perceived limits or simply jump-start their sedentary lives.’ – Chicago Tribune WHY DO YOU DO IT? HOW DO YOU DO IT? ARE YOU INSANE? Dean Karnazes is an internationally recognised endurance athlete who has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits. In this remarkable memoir, he recounts the personal events that have led to him becoming an extraordinary athlete. The seeds of his talents were seen early – at the age of nine he rode his bike alone over fifty miles to his grandmother’s house. As an adult, he’s taken part in a marathon across Death Valley, a 200 mile, twelve-person relay race (which he ran solo, of course) and one of the biggest and most controversial challenges of all – the first marathon ever run to the South Pole. In Ultramarathon Man, Dean recounts all these races and other unbelievable achievements. He introduces us to the sometimes bizarre emotional and psychological make-up of endurance runners, as well as the peculiar mores surrounding the subculture of ultra-endurance athleticism. The book is filled with fascinating characters and situations from the touching (how his running helped to pull his family back together) to the absurd (organising to meet the pizza delivery man on the highway during his run!). Dean’s story will amaze, fascinate and inspire even the most comfortable couch potatoes. And in a new epilogue, Karnazes answers the two questions he’s most often asked: What, exactly, do you eat and How do you train to stay in such good shape?

  10. Ian: ‘You’re going to run how far?’, Ryan: ’250 kilometres. But it’s over seven days, though.’ Ian: ‘And the furthest you’ve ever run is …?’, Ryan: ’42.2 kilometres …on the road. And on trail …35 kilometres.’ Ian: ‘Ryan, I think you need to reassess this …’ What does it take to run a six-day race through the world’s harshest deserts?

Since bursting onto the international trail-running scene by winning the first multistage race he ever entered – the brutal Gobi March – Ryan has gone on to win various other multistage and single-day races around the globe. Written with bestselling author and journalist Steve Smith, Trail Blazer – My Life as an Ultra-distance Trail Runner recounts the life story of this intrepid sportsman, from his experiences as a rudderless party animal to becoming a world-class athlete, and includes details on his training regimes, race strategies and aspirations for future sporting endeavours.Sports enthusiasts will enjoy the adrenaline-inducing trials and tribulations of one of South Africa’s most awe-inspiring athletes, while endurance-sport participants – from beginners to aspirant pros – will benefit from his insights and advice. As Professor Tim Noakes says in the Foreword to this book: ‘However much we might think we know and understand, there are some phenomena which now, and perhaps forever, we will never fully comprehend. We call such happenings “enigmas”. Or even miracles. Ryan Sandes is one such.’

During the 2013 season, Gaimon was recruited from the minor leagues to join Team Garmin-Sharp, the moneyball-style, ragtag cycling team of anti-doping advocates that rides at the topmost levels of elite cycling. In his story Pro Cycling on $10 a Day, Gaimon wields the full powers of his sardonic wit to present a witty, hand-me-down guide to American bike racing. Phil Gaimon is a professional cyclist who rides for Team Garmin-Sharp. He is a writer and entrepreneur who retired from laziness and computer games in 2004 in favour of riding a bike to lose weight. Gaimon maintains a blog, Philthethrill.net, on which he chronicles his ceaseless pursuit of the best cookies and milk in America.
