ABOUT THE BOOK:
The book is a collaboration between Michael Barry who, in addition to riding for Team Sky, has written columns for the New York Times and several books about cycling, and Camille McMillan. It's an honest and sometimes touching look into the life, the trials and the tribulations as well as the triumphs, of a cycling domestique.
Barry's poignant prose and McMillan's atmospheric photography create a volume that gives the reader a rare glance into the fascinating and occasionally strange world of professional cycling.
Le Metier was released on the 29th of April, 2010, and is now in stock.
