Book : Reg Harris - The Rise and Fall of Britains Greatest Cyclist
£4.49  

Reg Harris - The Rise and Fall of Britains Greatest Cyclist is a truly cinematic story, unearthed by Robert Dineen during exhaustive research. This epic account of Reg Harriss meteoric success takes you from his humble beginnings to his spectacular highs and his dramatic lows. Born into a poor, working-class family during the Great Depression, Reg Harris left school early to help support his widowed mother working in a bicycle shop. But after winning a local cycling competition, Harris realised his natural abilities and began to train seriously. Working in a paper mill to fund his ambitions, Harris soon started winning enough races to leave the mill and went on to break the rules of amateurism and become the favourite for three titles in the 1948 Olympics. But Harriss dreams of gold were shattered when he was involved in a high-speed car accident that nearly left him paralysed. However, Harriss determination and drive meant he defied the odds and he went on not only to compete in the Olympics but to win two silver medals.
