    Fantastic book

    A great book that dares take the reader into the reality of professional cycling. Hats off and a big Thumbs up to Paul Kimmage.

    Rough ride

    Generally well written, but really, should there still be glaring typos? I appreciate his cynicism, but I found him, as an athlete, to be weak. He quit race after race, stage after stage, and in the end cried, " it wasn't my fault." I used drugs only three times, but the blame lies with the system. He made choices and they weren't Sophie's. By all means attack the system at every level - in this he doesn't quit - but first take personal responsibility. Btw, if I'd had his talent, I'm quite certain I would have doped with the best and the rest.

    A great insight into cycling

    This is a great read and although the events are now some time ago, it is very relevant to the recent and devastating exposure of drugs in cycling. If you want to understand how Armstrong could get away with his drug taking, this let's you know how with its opening of the covers in a systemic corruption of the sport.

    Good read for cycling fans

    Great insight into the world of professional cycling. Cycling in the 80's does not sound to glamorous for the average domestique. I wonder if it's changed a lot compared to today?
