Froome: The ride of his life

From the day he joined a ramshackle cycling club made up of orphans and street children from Nairobi, Chris Froome had his sights set on greatness.

 Froome: The ride of his life chronicles Froome’s journey from dusty Kenyan mountain tracks to the historic roads of the world’s most famous cycling race and his victory in the 100th Tour the France in 2013.
 
It’s a journey that begins under the mentorship of his friend Kenyan cyclist David Kinjah. It’s the story of a boy with an unrelenting drive to follow his dream, which took him first to South Africa and ultimately Europe, where he was recruited into the ranks of the top pro cycling teams.
 
Despite his challenges – early underachievements as a professional, the tragedy of his mother’s death, and the inquisitional scrutiny about performance enhancing drugs dogging the sport – Froome emerge as a man apart as he sought relentlessly to capture road cycling’s holy grail.
 
From Africa to the Alps, from the Safari Simbaz club to the Champs Elysees, this is the story of Africa’s greatest cycling achievement.
