With a bike, a turbo trainer, and the right advice, you can beat anyone.
No one but Graeme Obree has the clarity of vision to get to the heart of the "problem" of how to improve as a racing cyclist. His innovative approach took him to the top of world cycling, twice breaking the world hour record - a story picked up in his Hollywood biopic The Flying Scotsman. It can draw the same outstanding athletic performance from you.
The Obree Way sidesteps conventional wisdom and strips cycling back to its elements, always asking the question: "What actually improves my race time?" This is no routine training program. Written in a conversational style, the book explains Graeme Obree's radical insights into technique, training, psychology, and diet, and the clear logic behind them.
At last, the best kept secret in cycling, the Obree three-phase breathing technique, is revealed in detail, getting more oxygen to your blood with less effort. Graeme Obree's training methods really work - the man is living proof. He believes that resting is key to training, that you can pedal, stretch, and breathe more effectively and that, if you really want it, you can find the will and intensity to improve. Get on your bike!

Although there are some very useful general riding and nutritional information in this book, i feel it is aimed squarely at the competitive cyclist. Being a leisure/sportive cyclist i found some chapters not relevant. A great reference for a racer though.
Modest guru and genius.
A good audiobook. Although the subject matter doesn't necessarily lend itself to this format the autobiographical elements come across really well.
Great advice and tips from a great cyclists. I was hoping for more on his life and training and less on nutrition. But very pleased with the book.
