Marco Pinotti, The Cycling Professor

Marco Pinotti released his autobiography, The Cycling Professor, in digital format on Thursday. In the book, he details his on-the-road knowledge and years racing alongside the likes of Mark Cavendish and Philippe Gilbert.

"This is for the fans and those who know cycling," Pinotti told Cycling Weekly. "I get people asking me, 'Ah, you're in the off-season now?' I tell them yes and they ask me out to a party or something. I explain in the book that cyclists are cyclists 365 days a year. To be ready to race in February you have to start training in December."
