The Secret Race Inside the Hidden World of the Tour De France: Doping, Cover-ups, and Winning at All Costs (Hardcover)
|Author: Tyler/ Coyle Hamilton|
From the Publisher:
A once top-ranked cyclist chronicles his downfall after testing positive for doping after winning gold at the 2004 Olympics while also addressing the practice's pervasiveness in the sport and his relationship with Lance Armstrong.
"[T]he broadest, most accessible look at cycling's drug problem to date. The authors limit the tedious technical details as best as they can (doping is complex, legally, logistically and scientifically) and generally avoid a sensational tone in telling the often harrowing story." - Ian Austen 09/12/2012
