Summary

Dare to Tri is the amazing story of TV presenter Louise Minchin's journey from the BBC Breakfast sofa to representing Great Britain at the World Triathlon Championships. This is a warmly written and wonderfully honest adventure-through-sport that will both entertain and inspire. 
 
'I didn't even know what a triathlon was before 2012… When I took up the sport three years ago I didn't imagine for a second then, that, one day, I would be able to represent my country internationally.' Louise Minchin 
 
What started out as a fun BBC Breakfast cycling stunt in 2012 culminated in Louise Minchin wearing the colours of Great Britain at the World Triathlon Championship in 2015 – this is the story of how a newly discovered sport became a passion and then an obsession. 
 
Dare to Tri charts Louise Minchin's incredible journey as she rediscovers competitive sport after 30 years and takes her first tentative steps as a triathlete. As her performances improve, there's a realisation that representing the Great British team in her age group is a possibility and the book tells of her plucky attempt to achieve this almost-unthinkable goal. 
 
It is an adventure not without its challenges as Louise has to overcome personal nerves, a brutal training regime, the odd bike crash and the occasional drama.  
 
Enjoy the ride as Louise Minchin challenges herself to represent Great Britain in triathlon.
