Summary
Winning the 2006 Tour de France should have been the culmination of a life's dream for Floyd Landis, but three days later, he was accused of using banned performance-enhancing drugs. Released by his team and threatened with the removal of his title, Landis went from winning the most prestigious race of his career to being unfairly labeled as a cheater, a liar, and a doper. This book is at once a memoir and an indictment of the unchecked governing bodies of cycling which have compromised the integrity of the sport. Landis details the highs and lows of his career as he lays bare the inner workings of the cycling world--a place where athletes are subject to the antiquated science, flawed interpretive protocols, and draconian legal processes of the anti-doping agencies--and finally lays to rest the scandal that threatened to destroy everything he's worked so hard to achieve.--From publisher description
Summary
A sports memoir by the American cyclist whose 2006 victory in the Tour de France was stripped due to allegations of doping sets out to clear his name by furnishing irrefutable evidence to prove his innocence, in a critique of the governing bodies of cycling and the Olympics
