Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of the revealing, inspirational memoir from the British winner of the Tour de France.
The Climb tells the extraordinary story of Chris Froome's journey from a young boy in Kenya, riding through townships and past wild animals, and with few opportunities for an aspiring cyclist, to his unforgettable yellow jersey victory in the 2013 Tour de France.
A journey unlike any other in the history of cycling, Froome has crossed continents, overcome the death of his mother and conquered debilitating illness to follow his dreams and represent Team GB and Team Sky. He has experienced soaring triumphs, humbling defeats, a public rivalry with Bradley Wiggins and, most recently, the pressures of Lance Armstrong's legacy.
Extraordinary and life-affirming, The Climb is a story of determination, hardship and unimaginable success.

the wiggins/froom gate affair
A unbelievably bad book, i am gobsmacked at how he contradicts himself over the wiggins/froom gate affair. i have both books and i lisend with a open mind, i back wiggins
a good read for any cycling fan - contrary to the other 2 reviews, its quite clear that Bradley Wiggins is an over-paid, over-hyped prima donna who should never have won the TDF .. Froome should have two Yellow Jersey's and Wiggins is very lucky to have had Sky money and a great team around him to nurse him through the course and to eventual victory - Wiggins has gone on and demonstrated more of his poor behavior this year and his use of the Media to pervert true meritocracy in the Sky team - interesting insight into the murky world of pro cycling and the ills of sponsorship money and individual ego over team spirit … well done Chris, victory over adversity .. WIggins go and listen to the Jam in your big pad in Mallorca and count yourself very lucky indeed and if you have a scrap of humility .. send Froom a Christmas card next year
His book has just made himself look like an idiot. I bought the book thinking I’d here his story but he talks about money and contradicts himself in regards to wiggins and sounds like a spoilt brat
