Sir Chris Hoy, the cycling Olympic legend has insisted that he finally found his true calling when he became the author of a kids’ book.
His fifth kid’s book so far hit the shelves last week and it seems he is collecting literary credits as easily as he did gold medals.
Hoy, who was king of the track during his career, also finds it quite exciting writing his Flying Fergus series books. The 40-year old noted that he sees writing books more as a vocation instead of as a job and he gains pleasure from it. (more…)
Many have been following Chris Hoy’s adventures as he prepared for his debut race in Le Mans this year.
About four days ago many found him preparing himself and facing the disbelief that he had actually qualified for this world event. There were interviews where Chris Hoy was found to state that he is overcome with awe at the aspect of what he is about to participate in. He has been practicing in his race suit offered by Nismo Racing. The forty year old is raring to go, being a native of Edinburgh. Having practiced taking part in motor racing, he felt that he was ready to race on the tracks
which were an exhilarating experience for him, especially when you compare road driving where you are stuck in traffic all the time. (more…)
Albeit the Brit cycling is struggling hard to come up with a winning performance yet Sir Hoy is really confident about an inspirational presence from Sir Wiggins. According to the best decorated British Olympian, the returning hero would come up with the needed fillip that would help the track cyclists to bounce back with confidence from the last month’s 14-year low at World Championships.
However, the legendary rider has warned the cyclists and the fans of Brit Cycling not keep expectations of the all-conquering feats of 2012 London & 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Britain came up with a disappointing 14-year low last month at Track Cycling UCI Worlds that was hosted at Paris. It was one of the worst performances by the Brit squad ever where they won only 3 silver medals & not one single gold- such an incident was an unfortunate first since the year 2001.
It, certainly, was quite an alarming outcome & poses a murky shadow on Britain’s fate at the upcoming Olympics. The big event is not even eighteen months away & hence the British team needs to work really hard to catapult it to a strong contending position at the 2016 Olympics. Sir Hoy, the celebrated mentor for Brit riders, did admit that the camp is passing through an under-confident phase at present. (more…)
