9780062330925: The Loyal Lieutenant: Leading Out Lance and Pushing Through the Pain on the Rocky Road to Paris

The stunningly candid autobiography of one of cycling’s great names and the man who rode alongside Lance Armstrong for each of his seven Tour victories

George Hincapie has always personified more than the sport in which he chose to compete, cycling, and his legacy will be more than the sum of his accomplishments on the road. It is also intertwined with the team-mates he helped to achieve success.
As Lance Armstrong’s trusted sidekick, he helped re-write the record books of the greatest cycling event in the world, the Tour de France. No other team-mate was with Lance for all seven of his wins. No one was closer to him as a friend or confidante and no one was closer to the scandal which would ultimately bring down Armstrong and so many of those around him.
Told with stunning candour, ‘The Loyal Lietenant’ offers the most transparent and engaging account yet of the now infamous years of cycling’s modern history.
It is a book that will once again change our perceptions of what it means to be a sporting great.

Book Description William Morrow Company, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Trading on the sterling reputation that enabled him to survive a widely publicized doping confession, American cyclist Big George Hincapie--a record seventeen-time Tour de France participant, Olympian, and key witness in the Lance Armstrong doping case--offers an insightful account of his esteemed career and a sports era defined by performance-enhancing drug use. In this highly anticipated cycling memoir, Big George Hincapie provides the most comprehensive account of a dark period in professional cycling, in which doping scandals have decimated the careers of some of the top athletes in the field. The Loyal Lieutenant reveals how Hincapie s life has been intrinsically tied to the sport he loves, from his earliest days in Queens, where he was influenced by his Colombian father s love of cycling and the Colombian cycling warrior archetype. Hincapie takes us through his amateur years to the Olympics, and chronicles his exhilarating ride as a professional, including finding his true calling as Lance Armstrong s most prized domestique --leading his then best friend to seven straight Tour de France victories. Hincapie speaks openly about his relationship with Armstrong, how he himself began doping, and why he quit long before the headline-making revelations. His personal evolution is the journey of a man dedicated to coming clean about his past and to restore honor to the sport he loves. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780062330925
