In Conversation with Seth Davidson

Friday, January 5th at  7pm - Ticketed Event

{pages} is delighted to present former pro cyclist Phil Gaimon in conversation with local cycling guru Seth Davidson.  Tickets can be purchased at Brown Paper Tickets.  Each ticket includes a copy of Draft Animals.  There will be cookies served at this event!

Like countless other kids, Phil Gaimon grew up dreaming of being a professional athlete. But unlike countless other kids, he actually pulled it off. After years of amateur races, hard training, living out of a suitcase, and never taking "no" for an answer, he finally achieved his goal and signed a contract to race professionally on one of the best teams in the world.

Now, Gaimon pulls back the curtain on the WorldTour, cycling's highest level. He takes readers along for his seasons in Europe, covering everything from rabid, water-bottle-stealing Belgian fans, to contract renewals, to riding in poisonous smog, to making friends in a sport plagued by doping. Draft Animals reveals a story as much about bike racing as it is about the never-ending ladder of achieving goals, failure, and finding happiness if you land somewhere in-between.
