Straight into the bin a book by a liar, a bully and a cheat.
on 13 August 2014
I bought a copy of this book in my local Oxfam shop and, having paid for it, politely asked them to put it in the bin so that there would be one less copy in the world. I have watched the Tour since I was a kid, idolising the likes of Hinault and Lemond. Armstrong almost broke Lemond with threatened legal actions and (allegedly) getting Trek to withdraw from a business arrangement with Lemond bike company. Armstrong is also the only person to have ever accused Lemond of drug taking, in an attempt cast doubt on Lemond's credibility. Armstrong is a cheat and worse that that, he's a bullying cheat. Anyone who questioned his authenticity was crushed by legal teams and ruined. I cannot bring myself to find one good word to say about this man. It is a shame this book is still for sale - I had hoped lack of demand would have seen it remaindered by now.
