On 17 July 1993, Graeme Obree stunned the international world when
he emerged from obscurity to smash Francesco Moser's World Hour
Record. The Flying Scotsman is Graeme Obree's searing
autobiography, from his tough upbringing in Ayrshire where he found
escape on the roads, to his head-to-head duals with Chris Boardman
and becoming a major star on the European circuit. Obree created
massive controversy in the professional cycling world with his
unique riding style and his pioneering construction techniques -
famously using washing-machine parts to complete the building of
his 'Old Faithful'. Yet all his sporting success was achieved in
the shadow of manic depression and suicidal despair. His life
continues to have its ups and downs as Obree brings his amazing
life story up to date as he continues to astound the world with his
creative genius and sporting prowess.
