Description

The white-knuckled pace of a bicycle race drives this novel about a young American's opportunity to compete in the Tour de France. Complex relationships with team-mates, personal and professional obstacles, and a terrible disaster cause the young cyclist to redefine his limits. An insider's perspective on the world of professional bicycle racing reveals that the tactics and skills required create a culture in which pain is the ultimate currency and endurance is the most powerful force. The intense pressure the competitors experience offers an instructive look at personal formation beyond the sports world.
