Involves 6+ training days a week, so will have to wait until PF subsided before giving it a go.

Contributorgold Kevin G Cycle of Lies - The Fall of Lance Armstrong by Juliet Macur
Just finished reading this 480 page book which is one of the best books I have read in a long time. Interested if anybody else has read this book and has any comments?

Ok, the book is finished. He is a thoroughly nasty piece of work. What were your thoughts Kevin?

Totally agree, he seemed to rule the entire peloton by fear, the way the cyclists that told the truth were ridiculed and made to be liars was dreadful too, and any young newbies had no choice but to take substances or be unable to compete or be thrown out of the team. Pay back sponsorships and earnings and throw in jail was my verdict, but HE certainly wasn't / isn't alone

With regards to the bullying and the media being unwilling/scared to publish the truth, I see a lot of similarities with the reporting of 'Rangers' FC up here. Hopefully it will end similarly too...
