A Real Eye-opener,
This review is from: The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France: Doping, Cover-ups, and Winning at All Costs (Kindle Edition)
I was initially reluctant to give money to a self-confessed doper, but in the end a combination of a price drop and my curiosity got the better of me and I am so glad that it did. A great read for any cycling fan and gives a real insight into the extent to which doping dominated the sport, and the normality with which it was treated. Hamilton comes across as a slightly weak person in awe of more dominant personalities, particularly Lance Armstrong who really looks to be a complete scumbag. The best chapters are the last 100 or so pages dealing with the time after Hamilton told the truth about doping (he gives credit to Floyd Landis for starting this) and the battle to be believed against Armstrong's legal onslaught.
