It also would have benefited greatly from a simple one- or two-page timeline recounting major dates and events in Armstrong's career, his tour victories, and the various investigations into his doping activities. The previous reviewer did a fantastic job, and will echo his comments about Tyler Hamilton's book. I was such a huge LA fan, but over the past few years I started to question as all of the top riders began to fall. After reading the many accounts, LA is not a very nice human being.
Congrats to the author for asking the tough questions and refusing to back down. While the historical articles were a bit redundant, it showed that David initially had admiration for LA. One needs to look no further than some of the interviews to see the arrogance coming through loud and clear.
This is the fifth book I read in the last two months and it has helped me to understand why riders did wat they did. I do hope that another book will be written about details of the past few years including the newer testimony of Floyd Landis and George Hincappie.
I stopped racing bicycles in and for the next 20 years didn't have anything to do with the sport. This means I literally had no idea who Lance Armstrong was beyond that he was an American cyclist who survived testicular cancer and founded a foundation dedicated to helping other cancer survivors, had a penchant for rubbing elbows with celebrities and even Presidents, and had won the TDF 7 times This collection of articles by journalist David Walsh covered all of the key years of Lance Armstrong's domination of the sport of professional cycling What I find most disturbing today are the parallels with the Festina Affair and how the sport is handling the situation of cheating in the sport today Festina was a team that was discovered to have used performance enhancing drugs like EPO and synthetic testosterone on a massive scale and the sport just seemed to want to forget and pretend the following year that the sport had magically repaired itself The tendency of cycling to want to forget the unpleasantness of the past is understandable, but not laudable.
These articles are a nice reminder of what happens when that tactic is taken and will educate anyone unfamiliar with Armstrong's tactics - both on and off the bicycle - to cover up such deceptions and the lives that were ruined as a consequence. It had been a long time coming. Lance Armstrong had a powerful story of hope that no one wanted to deny.
Only a small handful of commonsense writers looked at the larger picture and questioned its legitimacy. David Walsh was one of the few who dared to poke at the media bubble that had become Lance the unbeatable.
Having watched cyclists take on the demands of the world's toughest race, Walsh could not accept that anyone would be able to do it so easily, so steadily. The Tour de France was never meant to be tamed, it was meant to be survived. Some had seen the truth but were shunned into silence. Lance had raced exactly as one would if he were doped to the eyeballs.
What had seemed unreal turned out to be unreal. This series of articles from The Sunday Times will be eye opening especially for those who hadn't known of all the suspicions as they slowly unfolded. Lanced give the reader a timeline of when the real doping began and leaves one wondering if it will ever end.

What a change for a University of Florida partying Gator!
Before my diagnosis I was your typical college kid, floating through life without many worries, doing my work, not exactly focused or driven. I was always curiously interested in pushing the limits and exploring new frontiers, and when I graduated from nursing school I wanted a job that was cutting-edge and research focused.
Somehow I didn't realize, or perhaps it was denial, that when I accepted a position in a bone marrow transplant unit that all the patients would have cancer. This was a difficult discovery and realization for me during my first week of work, because so many of the patients' concerns were all too close to my own personal struggle. To make matters worse, we were treating a woman my age with lymphoma who everyone thought looked like my twin. We not only looked alike, but we had the same sense of humor and similar likes and dislikes.
I couldn't cope with taking care of her, much less seeing her or hearing her status in daily reports. I would go home after an evening shift feeling overwhelmed by the intensity and emotion of the day.
Although I had always been a natural athlete and competed in tennis, swimming, and running in college, I was overwhelmed with everything in my life and got fat, depressed, and hopelessly out of shape.
I knew that I needed to do something; I needed to move!
All my life, physical activity had always been freeing and centering for me. Bicycling had always appealed to me as the ideal form of sport -- you got exercise, could go places fast -- and a childhood dream had been to ride across the United States.
So, at the urging of a friend, I started bicycling with the local group. Little did I know that Gainesville, Florida, was a winter training mecca for cyclists, and that I was riding with world-class cyclists. When I realized this, I was delighted, amazed, and incredibly motivated to pursue more time on the bike. I dived into bicycling with my newfound passion and enthusiasm and much to my surprise was achieving more than I ever imagined -- my depression was resolving, I was losing weight, and I was winning races.
I pursued cycling with zeal, enthusiasm, and intensity. I was determined to begin following the race circuit and to have a more flexible work schedule. My nurse manager was wonderful, and we negotiated a work schedule that allowed me to travel to races, set up a coaching and training business, and train to set three world records. After many months of emotional struggle, I succeeded in sorting out my illness from those of my patients and learned that my experience gave me a different perspective and way of helping my patients.
I credit cycling for helping me overcome this forbidding emotional challenge. My time on the bike often required a lot of concentration to stay with the group, but when I rode alone, I had hours to mull over the beauty and troubles of life.
This time alone on the bike was like therapy. For me, exercise was therapy as I learned to sort out my cancer, my treatment, and who I was and what I wanted to do with the next year, three years, five years. And what if I had ten years? I learned from cycling the discipline and commitment that helped me not only get through cancer treatments but pursue my life passion of helping people to live beyond their cancer.
