ABOUT THIS BOOK: Profiles of New Zealand’s champion cyclists since WWII. "There have been hundreds of books written about New Zealand's rugby and cricket heroes, but virtually nothing about our great cyclists. Des Williams has done a wonderful job with Born to Thunder in filling this gaping gap. His profiles of our Olympic medallists Gary Anderson and Sarah Ulmer, earlier heroes like Nick Carter and Warwick Dalton, and all our other giants of the road and track over the past 60 years make for absorbing reading. These stories are all the more compelling because so many of them are being related for the first time." (Joseph Romanos, Wellington, 2006)

Cyclists and cycling people profiled in Born to Thunder are Gary Anderson, Bruce Biddle, Laurie Byers, Nick Carter, Stephen Cox, Warwick Dalton, Brian Fowler, Neil Geraghty, Karen Holliday, Ron Cheatley, Graham Sycamore, Wayne Thorpe, Bert McConnell, Paul Jesson, Warren and Ritchie Johnston, Harry Kent, Eric MacKenzie, Les Lock, Colin Dickinson, Peter Robinson, Norm Joyce, Colin Ryan, Jon Andrews, Blair Stockwell, Jack and Stephen Swart, Tino Tabak and Sarah Ulmer.
