David Millar (2016 Event)

Those lucky enough to witness David Millar’s spellbinding Book Festival event in 2011 will recall the athlete’s forthright admissions about calorie counting, secret doping and quirky camaraderie on the pro cycling circuit. Now he's back with The Racer, a love letter to racing and an unparalleled insight into the career of a Scottish cycling legend, which he discusses in this event recorded live at the 2016 Edinburgh International Book Festival. No other rider has so successfully transformed himself into a charmingly anti-establishment communicator.
