In 1987 Stephen Roche won cycling's 'triple crown' - returning from a season blighted by injury, he defied all odds to triumph at the Giro d'Italia, Tour de France and World Championships in the same year. Only one other cyclist in history, Eddy Merckx, has ever achieved this.
In Born to Ride, Stephen uses his most successful year as a springboard to explore the rest of his life. He does not hold back as he deals with with the highs of victory, the lows of injury, doping allegations and family breakdown, and show the demon's a sportsman faces when he reaches the end of his career. Personal and honest, Born to Ride reveals the pain and the pressures of being a top cyclist on and off the bike.
