My World on Wheels: the Posthumous Autobiography of Russell Mockridge

Author(s): Russell Mockridge


* A little known Australian cycling classic giving a first-hand account of the life of a pro cyclist in the 1950s including racing in Europe and the Tour de France * Originally published in 1960 (a year after his death) this long out of print Australian classic has been a much sought after collector's item, staring at $500 a copy. * Russell Mockridge is Australian sporting royalty with a string of Olympic and Commonwealth Games cycling medals, national titles and records, and professional road race victories in Europe, topped by his completion of the brutal 1955 edition of the Tour de France. * Recognition of Mockridge's achievements is undergoing a resurgence, culminating in his induction in the Cycling Australia Hall of Fame in 2015. * Mockridge won two gold medals in a single day at the Helsinki Olympics
