About this book
An updated edition of one of the classics of cycling and sports literature with a new introduction and new chapters - published to coincide with the 2007 Tour de France coming to London. In 1990 it won the William Hill Sports Book of the Year award.
Paul Kimmage's boyhood dreams were of cycling glory: cycling the Tour de France, and of becoming a national hero. He knew it wouldn't come easy. In 1986, he turned professional. That's when he discovered it wasn't about how much you wanted to win, it was about drugs. Here, he talks about the issue of drugs in sport.
