Fergus Hamilton is an ordinary nine-year-old boy with an extraordinary imagination. He lives with his mum and grandpa, and his faithful dog Chimp, in a flat above a shop, and he dreams of following in the tracks of his hero, world champ Steve “Spokes” Sullivan. But first he’s got to get a new (secondhand) bike, and beat his arch-rival Wesley Wallace to earn a spot on the cycling team. What’s even more extraordinary than his imagination, though, is the adventures he has when he spins the pedals on his bike backwards . . .
Fergus wants to find his dad, and with the help of his family and friends he’s determined and works hard to overcome any difficulties or fears that could stop him from achieving his dreams.
