This review is from: It's Not About The Bike: My Journey Back to Life (Paperback)
It's not about the bike....it's about the EPO, cortisone, actovegin, testosterone and blood doping.
It's about bullying teammates and team staff to build a massive doping conspiracy, ridiculing and marginalising anyone that questions you or your unbelievable performances, and discarding and trashing the reputations of those that want no part of it.
Mind you, it's a groundbreaking employment of the unreliable narrator in a biography.

Careful now, the believers will be along shortly to espouse the '500' doping controls without a positive. The Lance apologists are like Jehovah's. What they believe is considered ludicrous by most people, but they buy it because it makes them feel something. Armstrong is an odious individual, not because he doped but because of his whole demeanour.

This book is about one man's battle with, and recovery from, cancer against all the odds, not doping.

Chapter 9 The Tour. The 1999 Tour, which Armstrong doped in to win. This is sold on the 'miracle' that was 'recover from cancer - win tour at next attempt after recovery'. Front cover of my copy is Armstrong in his yellow jersey. This is not just a telling of a recovery from cancer, it is propogating the myth that will now hopefully fall apart. 'I'm sorry that you can't dream big. I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles'. Yeah, cheers Lance.
