Customer Review

on 28 March 2012
Rough Ride's publication was one of the seminal whistle-blowing moments in cycling, and it earned Paul Kimmage a shunning from the sport he once loved. At the time, it was derided by the greater cycling world as the work of loser, an also-ran, someone who felt forced to cheat because he couldn't take the pace.

Time, of course, has proved Kimmage right. Since the book's publication, professional cycling has been rocked by scandal after scandal, each one increasingly public. It is only now, decades after the book's original publication, that certain teams are beginning to make real efforts to eliminate doping from the ranks of pro cyclists.

In that sense, Rough Ride has earned its place as one of the classics of sporting literature, and a must read for all cycling fans.
