5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely interesting for non-cyclists; essential for riders.
Reviewed in the United States on May 4, 2019
What a great book! 30+ year rider here who used to be a Lance fan from '93-'05.

My opinion changed over the years, not because he doped, but because he lied and was a jerk.

After reading Tyler's book, and watching several documentaries, my opinion is that Armstrong is a bad, bad dude. Mean, vindictive, lying, cheating, a fraud.

But the book is really about Tyler Hamilton. I always liked him when he rode, but back then, everyone took a back seat to Lance. Lance, Lance, Lance!

Tyler has much more respect from me now. His broken collar bone ride in '03 was great, but it's nice to learn so much more about him. I now think it would have been nice for Tyler to have been in Lance's place at the very top (and if you read the book, you'll find that almost happened!)

A very great book, with citations, spanning a decade of the most tumultuous time of cycling's history. It even has suspense and drama (in a good way.)

A great book for anyone, and an essential book for cycling and sport fans around the world.

Great job, Tyler Efing Hamilton!

(My photos were taking on my sleeping bag, in a tent. I couldn't stop reading, even while camping!)
