Product description

"Cycle of Lies" by "New York Times" reporter Juliet Macur is the definitive account of the rise and fall of the most famous athlete of our generation, Lance Armstrong, through unprecedented access to the key players in his life and the investigation into the allegations of systemic doping. Relying on previously unpublished documents, "Cycle of Lies" reveals how Armstrong managed to perpetuate his myth for so long, the fortress he built to protect his image and upend anyone who got in his way, and why he fell so quickly.Spanning fourteen critical years in Armstrong s cycling career, "Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong "covers his comeback from cancer to the business deals that would make him a millionaire many times over, right up until the moment he stepped down as the chairman of his Livestrong charity. The story features key characters such as disgraced Tour de France champion Floyd Landis; Armstrong teammate George Hincapie; and Kristin Richard, Armstrong s first wife and possible doping accomplice.The history of one of the most precipitous and unceremonious falls in the history of sports, "Cycle of Lies" delves into exactly who was complicit in keeping Lance Armstrong s doping a secret from his legion of fans."
