Dr Marlon Moncrieffe with 'Cycling Book Of The Year’ award

Prestigious Sports Book Awards in association with The Sunday Times for Dr Marlon Moncrieffe

Huge congratulations to interdisciplinary researcher and educator Dr Marlon Moncrieffe who won ‘Cycling Book Of The Year’ for his publication Desire Discrimination Determination: Black Champions in Cycling in the Sports Books awards 2022.

The SportCycling book of the year logos Book Awards in association with The Sunday Times is the major annual promotion for sports writing and publishing. The awards exist to highlight the most outstanding sports books of the previous calendar year, to showcase their merits and to enhance their reputation and profile.


The book (an autoethnography) provides an alternative narrative to the dominant Eurocentric voice of elite and professional cycling, and is written and spoken through the life-histories, perspectives and voices of Black cycling champions from across the world, past and present. Unique individual accounts of desire, discrimination and determination provide the historical background knowledge and sociological analysis the sport so desperately needs for education and positive future opportunities in growth.
