Le Metier

The Seasons of a Professional Cyclist


Team Sky professional Michael Barry and photographer Camille J McMillan present Le Metier, an honest and touching look into the life, trials and tribulations - as well as the triumphs - of a cycling domestique. Barry has a rare talent for writing that captures life as a bike rider like never before, taking us inside the peloton for a whole season, with ever-present shadow McMillan recording every grueling moment on camera. Canadian Barry writes for The New York Times and The Times, and is also the author of Inside the Postal Bus, detailing his years with the US Postal team of seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong. The 264 pages of Le Metier take the reader from winter training rides in the hills of Spain to races all over the world as Barry supports HTC-Columbia team sprinter Mark Cavendish during a hugely successful year.
