Was it the greatest ride in Tour history or the worst betrayal the Tour de France has ever known?
This is the story of the 2006 Tour, remembered for that famous lone escape and subsequent positive drugs test by Floyd Landis, which plunged the sport into another doping crisis.
This book covers the race from beginning ? when several stars implicated in a doping inquiry were thrown off the race ? to the now famous race-winning moves by Landis, which ended in disgrace.
Wilcockson?s years of experience reporting on the Tour guides his team of writers with informed opinion, stage-by-stage reports, colour pictures and diagrams.
