  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1992 to the present day

Relive the history of British cycling through newspaper clippings in this personalised cycling history book. With coverage beginning in 1992, the year of Chris Boardman’s Olympic gold medal, this timeless cycling book takes you through three decades of history, revisiting all the key moments from the Olympics, the Tour de France and many more, right up until the present day. Now updated with Simon Yates’ triumph at la Vuelta Espana, including first-hand interviews, photographs and extensive coverage on the British cyclist’s victory.

Since Chris Boardman, a 23-year-old out-of-work carpenter from the Wirral, left Barcelona in 1992 as Olympic Champion, Britain’s first cycling gold medal since 1920, the fortunes of British cyclists have increased dramatically. Relive the fantastic achievements of Mark Cavendish, Britain’s first Road Race World Champion since 1965 and 2011 Sports Personality of the Year; Olympic heroes Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton, who can boast eight gold medals between them; Bradley Wiggins, the only rider to have won world and Olympic titles on both the track and the road; and Chris Froome, winner of the Tour de France four times in five years.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

Very good quality and value for money

Oliver6 Feb 2020

We were looking for a special 70th birthday present and this book is it. The gold embossed leather looks amazing and having the persons name embossed in gold is great. The presentation box it comes in is definitely worth the extra £5. All in all a very special gift. So anyone with a sport crazy person should contemplate this when trying to think of a great idea for a special present.

Arrived when they said it would

Arrived when they said it would but us a lot smaller than expected so is difficult to read. I couldn't see anywhere that said the pages would be smaller than the original size of the papers

I booked tickets for a show abd inadvertently booked the wrong seat numbers. I emailed ATG and they were really quick with a response. A lady called Charlotte Marsden was great! I asked if I could exchange seat numbers abd it was done swiftly and efficiently. This despite the fact that I had neglected to say I wanted to be in the stalls and not the dress circle. Charlotte rectified this for me and I now have the seats I should have booked. Great customer service!!!! Please don't hesitate in contacting them if you ever have an issue
