Steel Is Real, But Carbon Is Quicker looks at the grass-roots from which the vibrant and fast-growing British cycling scene has sprung. It celebrates the heroes who took to the road and proved that it was paved with British grit. People like Colin Sturgess, the individual professional pursuit champion at the world championships in 1989. Or Sean Yates, winner of a Tour De France time-trial stage in 1988 and one of the early architects of Team Sky. Or Phil and Grant Bayton, a father and son cycling dynasty.
