Pressestimmen

[Rendell's] not inconsiderable acheivement is to convey the sordid reality of the Tour while simultaneously adding to one's yearning for its lost idealism -- Matthew Syed Times

Synopsis

At 9:30 pm on 14 February 2004, former Tour de France winner Marco Pantani was found dead in Rimini. It emerged that he had been addicted to cocaine since Autumn 1999, weeks after being expelled from the Tour of Italy for blood doping. Conspiracy theories abounded - that he was injected in his sleep by a business rival, that the Olympic Committee had framed him, that Italian Industrialists had engineered his downfall, etc etc. If none of these is entirely true and none of them fully explains Pantani's personal tragedy, none of them is foundationless. This book debunks the myths and makes surprising revelations. About Pantani's personal tragedy, but also about the world of cycling. Matt Rendell had access not only to court transcripts but to many of Pantani's friends and the doctors who treated him. But Pantani's life is about much more than drug addiction. Lance Armstrong described him as 'more of an artist than an athlete - an extravagant figure ...' Despite being plagued with injuries he won both the Giro and the Tour in 1998, something very few cyclists even attempt. He was an inspirational icon, and the remarkable wins against all odds make gripping reading.

Von Fleißner Johann am 25. Oktober 2013
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Die großartig geschriebene Lebensgeschichte eines Menschen, der ein paar kurze Jahre ein herausragender Sportler war (und, unter glücklicheren Umständen, es viel länger hätte sein können) und in seiner Person den in die Irre gegangenen Radrennsport der Neunziger wie kein anderer verkörperte, erlitt und daran zugrunde ging. So tragisch und zugleich armselig sein Tod auch war, er hat eine verrückt gewordene Radwelt nicht eine Sekunde lang zum Innehalten und Überdenken ihres Tuns angeregt, man machte einfach weiter.
Nur ein englischer sportwriter kann diese Voraussetzungen mitbringen: die Besessenheit in der Recherche allerkleinster Details, diese wuchtige Schreibgewalt und nicht zuletzt die Redlichkeit, einer alles andere als angenehmen Persönlichkeit Gerechtigkeit widerfahren zu lassen.

Cruel and boring, ........ to the Reader.
Ok Pantanis Life was Short, but there is no Need to come from One in the thousands just to fill the paper, with Italian politics and such.
Even for Fans - nothing, I regret the buy!

Edit: Ok, I read it to the end, where it gets better. Therfore for hardcore and Pantani Fans it will be fine.

From former 1 star I give now 3.

More about Doping and Science than his racing... 6. März 2007
Von MLM247 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
First off, this is a good book, but it depends what you want out of it. Maybe I just prefer the cycling writings of John Wilcockson. For me, I like something like "23 Days in July" about the ups and downs, real life of a bike racer so that I feel like I am living it. This is the 3rd of the 3 Pantani books I have read and what I can say about it is; if you want to dig very deep into whether or not the guy "doped" than this is for you. If you want a book that really celebrates the champion's accoplishments balanced with what brought him down, without a ton of science thrown in, then I would recommend "Marco Pantani: The Legend of a Tragic Champion" as the best of the 3 books out there. Rendell's book is tied for second with Ronchi's overall. Ronchi's book really sheds more light onto his personal life and is also worth the read.

All good books, but I am on my second read of "tragic champion" and it probably won't be my last.

Overall, I feel Rendell thought Pantini was guilty of cheating and he made a point of proving it, which he did. Problem is, it was proven in heavy detail and took up too much of the book.

Detailed and interesting 17. Januar 2008
Von Joe Benvegnu - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Rendell does a good job of chronicling the young Pantini and the promise he showed in his early races. He also details his family life and the seeds for his later emotional issues. Rendell works analytically and steps through the events related to Marco's medical evidence of doping, his mental and social issues, and his eventual death. I have read other reviews in which readers expressed disappointment that Pantani's pro racing victories are not highlighted more in the book. I think the title explains Rendell's focus and as long as the reader in interested in learning more about Pantani as a man in addition to a cycling champion, I think this is a very good read.

Way too detailed 16. Januar 2007
Von North Country Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I struggled through this chronicling of Pantani's storied career. The author detailed every one of Pantani's races while he was a teenager then barely mentioned his early Tours de France. If I could stand more Pantani trivia, I'd buy the other two biographies to compare them with this. A disappointment.

Masterfully-told yet Heartbreaking Tale of a Brilliant Sporting Artist 16. Januar 2014
Von Joseph M. Papp - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
"The Death of Marco Pantani: A Biography" by Matt Rendell is a masterfully-told yet heartbreaking chronicle of a brilliant sportsman who seemed, at times, to be as much an artist on the bike as an athlete. Rendell's prose is sophisticated yet accessible and the research underlying the text is comprehensive...the facts in order.

This book is an excellent counterpoint to "Man on the Run: The Life and Death of Marco Pantani" by Manuela Ronchi, which is slanted heavily in favor of the self-interested and self-preserving narrative that Ronchi endeavored to propagate. Unlike her, Rendell had no business dealings with Pantani that he felt compelled to excuse or justify, however subtly.

What Rendell reveals about Pantani's character and his psychology is not so much shocking as it is sad, yet Matt writes with respect, compassion, and perhaps, admiration? Idk...I'll have to ask him via Twitter (@mrendell)!

In the meanwhile, get this book and read it, especially now that you, the public, understand more clearly what we endured in the pro peloton at all levels, from the heights of the Tour and Giro (which I never rode) all the way down to the smaller one day and minor stage races like Tours of Cuba (a place which Pantani visited) or Turkey.

Self-Destruction 23. August 2010
Von Doctor Moss - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
More a book about self-destruction than a book about cycling, although if you aren't familiar with Pantani, you may not find yourself drawn into the story.

Marco Pantani was the best cyclist in the world in 1998, winning the Tour de France and the Tour of Italy. He was also one of the most exciting cyclists of recent generations, winning with spectacular, risky accelerations during the hardest mountain stages. His fame in Italy transcended cycling and sports.

He was busted for doping the following year while leading the Tour of Italy, and, if Rendell's investigations are valid, all of Pantani's professional achievements are tainted by consistent use of EPO to enhance the oxygen-carrying capacity of his blood.

Pantani did persist in his cycling career after the bust, famously winning a stage of the Tour de France on Mt. Ventoux against Lance Armstrong when the two reached the finish stretch alone, and Armstrong chose not to contest the finish. But Pantani was on the way down, professionally and personally, while Armstrong continued to ascend. He became a heavy coke user, binging repeatedly until finally barricading himself in a hotel room and coking himself to death.

It's a well-researched and well-told, unfortunately true, dark story of self-destruction. And you'll learn more than you ever wanted to know about blood testing.
