Wheelmen isn't just about Armstrong, and it isn't just about doping. Instead it attempts, and suceeds, in painting a full picture of the entire story. From the late seventies, through the 1984 Olympics with Eddie B defecting from Poland, it introduces Thom Weisel in detail, the formation of the first US Pro team 7-Eleven, through the creation of Subaru-Montgomery and eventually US Postal. It covers the whole story, the team structure, the coaches, the financiers, the sponsors.
Where "Secret Race" covered the story from the point of view of the rider, "Wheelmen" covers it from the other side, the structure, how everything came about and ultimately how everything collapsed. The two compliment each other perfectly and if you own both you are unlikely to need to buy another Lance book.
It is still surprisingly easy to read and clearly shows the authors intimate knowledge of the outing of one of the biggest lying cheats in
modern cycling racing history.

Have read all the books on Armstrong and this is by far the best. It really exposes what a vile individual
he is and a disgrace to the sport. Read more
