95% Dead: From Death Bed to World Record [9781785315206]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
The truth is that internally there was nothing majestic or glorious in what I was doing. I was angry at cancer. I was angry it picked on me. That's what drove me, every single pedal stroke. I was furious. It's all about what you can't do. You shouldn't do this and you won't ever be able to do that. I didn't want any part of that game.' In 95% Dead, cycling world record holder, charity ambassador and fundraiser James Golding reflects on near death, the extremes of his discipline and the true purpose of life. Originally a hedonistic, materialistic BMXer, Golding's life was changed by diagnosis with a huge 11.5cm tumour at the age of 27. Unlikely survival led to a new perspective and, with it, a focus on one of the most physically demanding sports of all. Spending up to 14 hours a day in the saddle, racing across continents, Golding is now an elite ultra-endurance cyclist. Laced with humour and insight, Golding's sporting philosophy is simple. 'Why would I fear death on a bike?' he asks. 'I already died in a bed.'
