Why We Love It
With six years of material to work with, Gaimon covers every possible topic from the team dinner table to the toilet with plenty of stops along the way.
Where We Use It
At camp, traveling, or anywhere you can curl up with a good book.
Phil Gaimon's Ask a Pro answers every question you've always wanted to ask about pro cycling - sort of. Gaimon gathers the best of his popular Q&A column, and pokes fun at his younger self. Despite the howling protests from his peers, no one's ever been more willing to spill the beans on what it's really like inside the pro cycling peloton than the sarcastic scribe Phil Gaimon. Building on the outrageous success of his hilarious 2014 debut, Pro Cycling on $10 a Day: From Fat Kid to Euro Pro, Gaimon gathers the absolute gems from his monthly Q&A feature column in VeloNews magazine into Ask a Pro and adds a dose of fresh commentary and even more acerbic and sharp-eyed insights.
Gaimon wields his outsider's wit to cast a cock-eyed gaze at the peculiar manners, mores, and traditions that make the medieval sport of cycling so irresistible to watch. Ask a Pro includes new resources from Gaimon, too, including his Cookie Map of America, dubious advice on winning the race buffet, a cautionary guide for host housing, Phil's pre-race warm-up routine, and a celebrity baker's recipe for The Phil Cookie.
