Bala Verde said:I thought they were called yobs (although in his defense most of them are unemployed and carry around knives...). The way he behaves after finishes, there are certainly some similarities.
But honestly, a biography at 24. It's like a 16 year old Britney Spears singing about love...
I am going to guess the storyline here (perhaps warranting a spoiler alert), so can someone confirm:
-Introduction: the story of my life, how I became so great
-Chapter 1: I was young and grew up in a poor environment. I hated school and I did not have a lot of possibilities. Everyone is a farmer or mechanic around here. I loved to watch cycling.
-Chapter 2: I started riding a bike and loved it. I trained really hard every day, out in the open fields battling the wind.
-Chapter 3: I joined a cycling team and started racing. I went to every race in the UK even if it took me hours to get there. More and more hardship I suffer.
-Chapter 4: I am not that good, but it's all because the others have better bikes and facilities and I am poor, so I just have to work harder.
-Chapter 5: the track team. My coach believes in me, and pushes me to the limit. I need to work on my attitude, because I am a difficult person.
-Chapter 6: Some set backs. Will I ever make it to the top?
-Chapter 7: To the road. People believe in me as a road sprinter. I take my one chance and prove them right.
-Chapter 8: I join Columbia and they work for me. I ride the TdF and I am the greatest at 24.
Summary: I have a dream; Much hardship; I work hard; Setbacks; I become successful.
Bala...you forgot the chapter about his testing numbers being poor...team not interested in him...new anger to fuel greatness!!
