Lance Armstrong und das Rad der Lügen: Juliet Macur, Sportreporterin bei der New York Times, liefert die erste umfassende Darstellung, wie das System Armstrong über Jahrzehnte funktionieren konnte. Kollegen, Kontrolleure, Sportorganisationen, Sponsoren, Medien und selbst die Familie – sie alle wurden von Lance und seinen Helfern belogen, betrogen und unter zum Teil massiven Druck gesetzt. Das Buch, das auf intensiven Gesprächen mit Lance Armstrong und zahlreichen Interviews mit alten Weggefährten basiert, enthüllt die Zusammenhänge des größten Dopingskandal der Geschichte und liefert das beeindruckende Psychogramm eines scheinbar vollkommen gefühlskalten Egomanen. Spannend von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite – nicht nur für Radsport-Fans!

Lance Armstrong war der Mann, um den sich alles drehte. Aber es gab in seinem mafiaartigen Netzwerk zahllose Mitwisser und Mittäter. Sie waren es, die die Legendenbildung möglich machten. Und die am Ende für seinen Sturz ins Nichts sorgten. Der Fall zeigt, welche Doppelmoral durch Doping und Korruption im Sport gefördert wird. Und weshalb es sich nicht um Kavaliersdelikte handelt, sondern um organisierte Kriminalität. Das Buch stützt sich auf zahllose, exklusive Interviews mit Teamgefährten wie Floyd Landis, wichtigen Zeugen wie Betsy Andreu sowie Journalisten wie David Walsh, die halfen, den Skandal aufzudecken. So entstand eine ungewöhnliche, faszinierende Hörbuchfassung. In ihr kommen alle Gesprächspartner in Auszügen aus den Original-Aufnahmen selbst zu Wort.

Tyler Hamilton war ein Naturtalent, einer der leidensfähigsten und zähesten Radfahrer, bei US Postal der zweite Mann hinter Lance Armstrong. In seinem Buch erzählt er, wie die Amerikaner sich in den Neunzigern die Seele aus dem Leib fuhren und dennoch keine Chance gegen europäische Teams hatten, die immer schneller waren, immer noch Luft hatten - bis die Mannschaft anfängt, sich spritzen zu lassen. Er legt offen, wie straff organisiert dieses System war, das das berühmteste Radrennen der Welt zur Tour de Farce werden ließ, wie korrupte Ärzte und skrupellose Teamchefs agieren und Mannschaften zu gut geölten Maschinen wurden. Wie eine ganze Sportart buchstäblich unter die Räder kam und eine Parallelwelt aus Lügen, Angst und Manipulation entstand, die ehemalige Helden als lädierte Wracks zurücklässt.

BACK ON THE BIKE LANCE ARMSTRONG is the premier cyclist in sports history. But the road to victory has not been smooth, which makes his story all the more compelling. In 1991 he was the National Amateur Cycling Champion, and a professional career seemed guaranteed. But a grim diagnosis of cancer in 1996 threatened to cut the career -- and his life -- short. With the help of family, friends, and a dedicated team of doctors, Lance began the hard work not only to beat the disease, but to get back on the bike. By the summer of 1999 Lance was not only back, he was leading the pack to his first Tour de France win. And he hasn't stopped winning since that sweet victory. Here's the story of Lance Armstrong, from his first ride, to his most recent race, and all the twists and turns in between!

Few champions have astonished the world as much as Lance Armstrong. A cancer survivor who went on to win the Tour de France an unprecedented seven times, he is an inspiration to millions. Now the full story can be told. With complete access to Armstrong, and to his inner circle, and drawing on interviews with family members and training partners, coaches and celebrities, team-mates and rivals, friends and foes, sportswriter John Wilcockson tells of those who helped Armstrong along the way -- including his mother Linda, his ex-wife Kristin and one-time fiancee Sheryl Crow -- and explores the traits of character that made Armstrong unique. The story of Lance Armstrong is one of brutal, painful effort, of natural brilliance, of relentless ambition, of extraordinary glory. His achievement is all the more stunning for its unconventionality: a boy from small-town America who beat the world. Brash and fiercely competitive, Armstrong has never been without close friends or bitter enemies. His achievements have been dogged by accusations of doping, accusations of secrecy, and by questions about how triumph on such a grand scale could be possible - questions that are addressed head on in LANCE ARMSTRONG. Tracing the highs and lows, and bringing alive the drama of the races in which Armstrong smashed expectations time after time, LANCE ARMSTRONG gives the complete story of a matchless champion.

"I want to die at a hundred years old after screaming down an Alpine descent on a bicycle at 75 miles per hour. I don't do anything slow, not even breathe. I do everything at a fast cadence: eat fast, sleep fast." At twenty four, Lance Armstrong was already well on his way to becoming a sporting legend. Then, in October 1996, he was diagnosed with stage four testicular cancer. When lesions appeared on his brain and in his lungs, doctors gave him a 40% chance of survival. On that day Armstrong's life changed forever and in typical fashion he met the challenge head on - this was one fight he was determined not to lose. As he battled against the cancer invading his body and the chemotherapy that threatened to sap his soul, a tremendous sense of commitment emerged, to his training and to the people around him who never gave up on him. Just sixteen months after he was discharged from hospital, Armstrong entered the Tour de France, a race famed for its gruelling intensity, and won, in the fastest ever time. Just a few months after that, he became a father. It's Not About the Bike is the story of one man's inspirational battle against the odds, charting his progress through triumph, tragedy and transformation. This is an awe-inspiring tale of immense courage and will.

Taking place over twenty-three days in July and across more than 2,100 miles of smooth blacktop, rough cobblestones, and punishing mountain terrain, the Tour de France is the most grueling sports event in the world. And in 2004, five-time champion Lance Armstrong set out to achieve what no other cyclist in the 100-year history of the race had ever done: win a sixth Tour de France.Armstrong had four serious challengers who wanted nothing more than to deny the man the French call Le Boss from achieving his goal. The major threat among them was the only other former Tour de France champion in last year's race, Germany's Jan Ullrich- The Kaiser. But when the race was over, Lance Armstrong once again wore the yellow jersey of victory.
