Lance Armstrong's comeback from retirement is documented in a new book published by the seven-times Tour de France winner next week titled My Comeback: Up Close and Personal.
American sports photographer Elizabeth Kreutz was allowed 'unrivalled access' to Armstrong throughout the 2009 season, and the 208-page book sets out to tell the story of Armstrong's return to the sport of professional cycling.
Kreutz's photographs are accompanied throughout the book with journal entries written by Armstrong, charting the highs and lows of the year, both on and off the bike.
In the US, the book is titled Comeback 2.0, in reference to Armstrong's first return to cycling after suffering from testicular cancer. Armstrong has previously published two best-sellers telling the story of his comeback from cancer and his seven Tour wins, It's Not About the Bike and Every Second Counts.
My Comeback: Up Close and Personal is scheduled for publication in the UK on December 3, priced around £20 (hardback), and is published by Yellow Jersey Press, ISBN 0224083155.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
