The title says it all but I recall that many Americans, myself included, who originally were not into bicycle racing, watched the Tour because of Lance Armstrong. In this book, we discover that many of the riders on many of the competing teams were into blood doping and EPO blood transfusions. Many other teams looked at it this way: if someone else is doing it, it's unfair and therefore we should also do it.
