Few noticed Cadel Evans in his first Tour de France when in the last week he was photographed on the final climb of the stage alongside the leaders Lance Armstrong and Ivan Basso. But he was determined to succeed, and that year he finished eighth. By 2006 he was fifth overall and in 2007 he lost to Alberto Contador by a mere 23 seconds. But who is this dedicated sportsman? What has been his formula for success? Cadel Evans: Close to Flying is the behind-the-scenes story of the dedication and hard work it takes to reach the highest level of elite sport. Cadel gives us a glimpse of the physical and psychological tests that are required to be the best, whilst giving an illuminating look at the Tour de France - the teams, the climbs, the politics and the opponents that make it the most renowned cycling race in the world.
