Riis: Stages of Light and Dark

Autor Bjarne Riis
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 14 mai 2012
In 1996 Danish cycling legend Bjarne Riis won the Tour de France. 11 years later he called a press conference and confessed to taking performance-enhancing drugs in order to achieve the ultimate cycling triumph. In Riis, his sensational autobiography, the notoriously private Dane bears his soul. From the shy young daydreamer who discovered cycling as an eight year old, to the hardened, regular user of banned blood booster EPO. Brutally honest and as fast paced as one of his breakaways from the peloton, Riis is a powerful insight into a key figure in cycling.
