The Crooked Path to Victory: Cheating in Professional Bicycle Racing by Les Woodland

A history of bicycle racing's dark side from the earliest days of the sport in the 1800s right up to the present day. The author has spent twelve years researching a fascinating century-long tale of trickery, drug taking, doping, team scullduggery, sabotage, ringers, race fixing, fraud, spectator sabotage, violence, poisonings, political infighting and sudden deaths.
