The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning sports writer Owen Slot captures the gruelling hard work and the thrill of competing at the highest level in this exciting and moving story about an ambitious young sports star. Paper boy Sam is talent-spotted when out delivering on his round. Joining a cycling club is the first step in the ambitious task of training himself to be good enough to compete in the famous, newly built Olympic Velodrome. An exciting and inspiring story for the 2012 Olympics.
Cycling for Gold by Owen Slot
Sam has discovered a talent no-one knew he had...
Sam is the fastest boy on his paper delivery round - and under suspicion for being too speedy. But when Sam's boss spots his talent for cycling, he also sees an opportunity.
And so years of rigorous training begin as Sam prepares to race in the Olympic Velodrome. Can Sam handle the expectation, now his skills have been recognised?
From an award-winning chief sports reporter for The Times, this fantastic blend of fiction with non-fiction detail will appeal to a wide range of readers aged 8-12.
