OLYMPIC CYCLISTS CELEBRATED IN NEW BOOK

Gold Rush 2008 book

British cyclists took the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games by storm, taking cycling to another level and helping Team GB to is biggest medal haul in 20 years.

To celebrate the stunning success of Britain's cyclists, world-renowned photographer Phil O'Connor has published a book of his images from the event - Gold Rush 2008.

Phil had unique and unrivalled access to the riders at every cycling event at the Games, and his photographs tell their own story, from Nicole Cooke's opening gold medal in the women's road race to Chris Hoy's triple gold medal feat in the Laoshan Velodrome.

Limited first edition copies of Gold Rush 2008 are available now from Cycling Weekly's online shop priced £24.99 or from book sellers (ISBN 978 0862 963 194).
