The fantastically fun, magical cycling adventure series from Sir Chris Hoy. It's decision time for Fergus and the rest of the squad. Training together has been going well but the International Championships are nearly here, and it's time to name the four riders who will be in the starting line-up. The coaches decide the only fair thing to do is hold official trials to decide who's in - and who's out. It's neck and neck for Fergus and Daisy after the Keirin and the road race . . . and with just one race to go, tensions in the teams are riding high. . . Written with award-winning author Joanna Nadin, with fantastic illustrations from Clare Elsom, Flying Fergus is perfect for bike-mad boys and girls and fans of the Frankie's Magic Football series. ""Champion cyclist Chris Hoy breathes his passion for cycling into this entertaining and imaginative adventure about an ordinary boy and his big cycling dreams."" The Guardian

Commander Carnaby Menace 22.08.2020


I though this was only about a cycling race but this was not about cycling it was also about escaping from some dangers . I liked Chimp the most because he was so cute . It interested me because it was suspense , adventures and thrilling like whats going to happen next, thats why I liked. I would like to recommend it to my friends so they would also enjoy reading this book.
