9780091749262: A Rough Ride: Insight into Professional Cycling

In A Rough Ride, Paul Kimmage gives a devastatingly frank account of what life is really like in the world of professional cycling. In tracing his mixed fortunes, Kimmage describes not only the grueling pressures of the sport but also the seamier side: the widespread use of drugs to enhance performance. A Rough Ride breaks the law of silence to expose a world where the supposed glamour has worn very thin.

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
