In 1999, two-time Olympian Lance Armstrong staged what many considered to be the most dramatic comeback in sports history, winning the Tour de France just 3 years after his body was ravaged by cancer. He went on to win the Tour de France a record-breaking 7 consecutive years, from 1999 to 2005, becoming an international icon and peerless legend in the cycling world. Behind this success is a multifaceted plan of strengthening, bicycling, and eating--so strong and so effective that it created history. With "The Lance Armstrong Performance Program," cyclists of every experience level can find the exercises, riding schedules, endurance builders, and mental tricks that brought Lance back to the pinnacle of cycling. These methods were crafted by his coach, Chris Carmichael, the U.S. Olympic Committee's coach of the year in 1999, and have been refined by Chris and Lance during their years of working together. Rich with advice and new personal anecdotes on making a comeback in 2009 from both Lance and his coach, "The Lance Armstrong Performance Program" shows readers how to reach their peak riding capacity in just seven weeks. Whether novices or pros, readers can now ride the same path as Lance to achieve their personal best.
