The shortlist - to be put to a public vote - is announced today. Cycling books dominate the longlist.

Cycling books expected to do well at British Sports Book Awards

Journalist David Walsh has been named the favourite by Ladbrokes to win the autobiography/biography category at this year’s British Sports Book Awards. His book Seven Deadly Sins recounts his chase of drug-cheat Lance Armstrong and is already a multi-award winner. Of the eight books in the category, three are based on cycling. The other two are My TIme by Sir Bradley Wiggins and William Fotheringham’s book, Merckx: Half Man Half Bike.

The longlist is whittled down to a shortlist at a ceremony to be held at Lords’ cricket ground later today. The public can vote on the shortlisted titles.
