CHRIS BOARDMAN
In conversation with John Inverdale
Chris Boardman is the much-loved
co-presenter of ITV’s Tour de France
and the BBC’s Olympic Games coverage,
as well as being one of our greatest and
most inspiring cyclists. Chris was the
first British cyclist to win Olympic gold
for 75 years when he stormed to victory
at the 1992 Barcelona games. In 1994
he became the first British cyclist since
1967 to wear the yellow jersey at the
Tour de France.
In his
Sunday Times
best-selling
autobiography,
Triumphs and
Turbulence,
Chris outlines his transition
from professional cyclist to backroom
genius. His meticulous attention to
detail and pioneering technical know-
how were crucial in British cycling’s
success at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.
John Inverdale is a television and
radio sports presenter who has covered
the Olympic Games, Wimbledon and the
FIFA World Cup.
