superhumans. Compared to the cyclists of the late 1980's, these techniques created an unrecognizable sport.
It however is not just a sport science book but it also tells us a lot about the players and personalities
in the sport during the 1990's and the 2000's.
Tyler Hamilton's recollections are so detailed. You can sense the pain and the release of opening up about
his dishonest past (and that of his teammates). I applaud his revelations on what happened - it's
the only way to move forward.
A great read! I've read it twice from end-to-end.
