After retiring from professional cycling and realising his dream of launching his own range of bikes, Chris was eager to devote his time, knowledge and experience to inspiring the next generation of cyclists. A new venture into the world of publishing has proved a huge success.
Be Amazing! An Inspiring Guide to Being Your Own Champion
As a child, Chris never would have believed that he could have achieved his dream of becoming an Olympic Champion. In his first motivational book for children, he shares everything he has learned on his journey to help inspire kids to fulfil their potential and be the best they can be. With practical ideas for building confidence, resilience and self-belief, as well as dealing with failure, the book has been hugely popular for children unlocking their potential.
This popular series of books, first published in 2016, is aimed at 5-8 year olds, when children often start cycling and reading independently. Written with co-author Joanna Nadin, an award-winning children’s author, and illustrated by Clare Elsom, the tenth and final book in the successful series was published in February 2019.
How to ride a bike
With his years of experience, success on the track and passion for cycling, there was no better person to write this invaluable manual. Since hitting the shelves in 2018, the book has proved a hit with cyclists at all levels, from those getting on a bike for the first time in a while, to seasoned pros looking for tips and tricks to take things up a notch.
