The Secret Race

Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France: Doping, Cover-ups, and Winning at All Costs

Winner of the William Hill 'Sports Book of the Year 2012', this tells the riveting story of seven-time Tour de France rider, Tyler Hamilton, as he comes clean about the doping, the cover-ups, and his determination to succeed - whatever the cost. 'Brilliantly detailed and wholly convincing' "Sunday Times"
Portrait

Tyler Hamilton is a former professional bike racer, Olympic gold medalist, and NCAA champion. He raced professionally from 1995 to 2008 and now runs his own company, Tyler Hamilton Training, in Boulder, Colorado. Daniel Coyle is the Sunday Times bestselling author of Lance Armstrong: Tour de Force and The Talent Code. He lives with his wife and four children in Homer, Alaska, and Cleveland Heights, Ohio.

Zitat
"Brilliantly detailed and wholly convincing: with Coyle's skill and Hamilton's honesty, the book was always likely to be excellent. This is no generalised or theoretical exploration of a doping culture but a forensic description of how it worked. Armstrong used to say there would always be sceptics who didn't believe in his story, but now the sceptics are those who, ostrich-like, continue to believe. They should be compelled to read this book, and though the collision with reality will cause them to shudder, the good news is that they will be riveted by a well-told story and will be the better for knowing the truth." -- David Walsh Sunday Times "The broadest, most accessible look at cycling's drug problem to date." New York Times "The news leaks about The Secret Race have vastly undersold its importance. Tyler Hamilton's book is a historic, definitive indictment of cycling's culture of doping during the Armstrong era. Here's the reality. The Secret Race isn't just a game changer for the Armstrong myth. It's the game ender. No one can read this book with an open mind and still credibly believe that Armstrong didn't dope. It's impossible. That doesn't change the fact that he survived cancer and helped millions of people through Livestrong, but the myth of the clean-racing hero who came back from the dead is, well, dead. The book is the holy grail for disillusioned cycling fans in search of answers. The book's power is in the collected details, all strung together in a story that is told with such clear-eyed conviction that you never doubt its veracity." Outside magazine "Astonishingly candid... an extraordinary confessional." -- Matt Dickinson The Times "Riveting... Just about every significant detail in the USADA evidence is here. And it is brilliantly conveyed by an insider who can see both sides of the story: the institutional corruption, which eats away at the culprits, as well as the crippling pressure on riders to conform. We can expect plenty more books to be published on this conspiracy, for it is arguably the most audacious ever plotted in the world of sport. But it feels as though Hamilton's is likely to become the definitive work on the subject." -- Simon Briggs Daily Telegraph
