Graeme Obree stunned the world of international cycling when he emerged from obscurity to set a new world hour record, considered the most difficult and exalted of cycling titles. Riding a bike of his own design in his own innovative “superman” riding position, the “Flying Scotsman” was an iconoclast, inventor, and superbly talented athlete.

Yet Obree’s lengthy struggle with manic depression nearly killed him. Graeme Obree candidly tells of the hard-fought road to cycling stardom and the even harder road to recovery, sharing an inspirational story that will resonate with readers everywhere.
