Review:

"Sent shockwaves through the peloton" (Daniel Friebe Outdoor Fitness)

"A devastatingly frank description of life on the professional road cycling circuit, hurtful in its telling of unwelcome truths yet powerful in its capture of what it takes, legally and illegally, to compete" (Mary Perryman Huffington Post UK)

"In the wake of the Armstrong affair, you can’t move for books about doping, but Kimmage, and ex-pro rider himself, was the first to ‘spit in the soup’ back in the 1990s... A must read for any cyclist" ( Cyclist)

Book Description:

One of the greatest books ever written about the life of a professional athlete: the full story beind life in the peloton.

Winner of the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award
