Project Rainbow free pdf Twenty years ago, British road cycling was in the doldrums: today it is at the top of the world, thanks to Bradley Wiggins' Tour de France win, Mark Cavendish's Road World title and the dominance of the British squad, Team Sky. Cycling has become that rare beast, a story of British sporting success built from the bottom up. As GB Elite Road Coach and Team Sky's Performance Manager, Rod Ellingworth is one of the chief architects behind that success. Here, for the first time, he tells the story of this amazing journey: the meteoric rise of both teams to the top of the road cycling world, and the four-year campaign that led to Mark Cavendish's historic Road World Championships title in 2011. With an introduction by Mark Cavendish.

About Rod Ellingworth

Having represented GB from 1989 until his retirement in 2001, Rod Ellingworth founded and ran the GB Cycling Academy. Then, alongside Dave Brailsford and Fran Millar, he was instrumental in creating Team Sky in November 2008. William Fotheringham has been the Guardian's cycling correspondent since 1994. He has covered 22 Tours de France and four Olympic Games and his published work includes the best-selling biographies Put Me Back On My Bike: In Search of Tom Simpson and Merckx: Half-Man, Half-Bike.
