HASH(0x8bbd96fc) von 5 Sternen Sad but true. 17. Januar 2009
Von Larry TheobaldCycleItalia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Bad Blood, just like "From Lance to Landis" was a book I couldn't put down until I read the whole thing. Then I enjoyed reading it again. This is not an enjoyable subject of course but interesting to anyone who cares about pro cycling. As one who got excited about pro cycling back in the early 80's when Greg LeMond was taking on the best, my cycling history is a bit longer than the writer's but I found myself feeling the same feelings he described as one cheater after another is exposed. I may not be quite as cynical as the author but I do hope for the day when sporting ethics might overtake commercial interests---but I'm not holding my breath!

HASH(0x8bb73b04) von 5 Sternen relevant to 2010 procycling doping 3. November 2010
Von ~BD - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I got this book in the aftermath of the 2010 ProTour cycling season and Contador's (among many other Spanish riders) positive tests. Although detailing events of the mid 1990s thru Armstrong's Tour de France career and therefore could be seen as dated, it does provide both perspective and context of why doping in cycling occurs, its systemic nature, and to what extent it is nuanced/concealed by cycling's journalists.

In particular, I have a renewed disdain for cycling directors such as Riis, Bruyneel, and Aldag as well as the weird relationships that cyclists & managers have with the UCI and their own national sport agencies.

THere is a a fair amount of information about operation Puerto- which could be seen as Festina II and the author fleshes out the damage control that occurred in its aftermath. Some folks were scapegoats and others, probably just as guilty, suffered little or no consequences.

All in all, a good revealing read although it seemed to lag a bit at the end.

HASH(0x8bbdfa68) von 5 Sternen Bad Blood 23. Juli 2012
Von S. christian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Great book. Very insightful. Unfortunate times for cycling as written about in many other books and publications. Well written by an expert in cycling journalism. Lance fans will once again be upset but his wins/era was tainted to say the least. Very corrupt times and needed/needs to be exposed
HASH(0x8bb6b684) von 5 Sternen The journalist's perspective 1. Januar 2013
Von J. T. Gotsick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
If you've read any of the cyclists' memoirs about their experiences with the use of performance-enhancing drugs and techniques in professional cycling, this book provides an interesting new perspective. Penned by a journalist who covered the sport in depth during these 'dark ages', it describes the transition from fan to skeptic/critic for one who could see the superhuman performance clearly, but only caught glimpses of the technology and deception behind it. It meanders a bit, but the vignettes fill in some blank spaces and give a few 'a-ha' moments for long-time fans of the sport who wanted the real inside story about some of its heroes and villains.
HASH(0x8bb73594) von 5 Sternen Seems like how many people feel/felt 21. Dezember 2012
Von Nola Padrino - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I've only recently become a cycling fanatic, so hard for me to compare myself to others. But in the past year I've read several books on the history and I am empathetic towards those so passionate. The author seems to be like many who were so enamored with the sport only to be disappointed by those he truly admired. Nice look into the recent past and how doping was more than just a few in the peloton.

Personally I had no illusions that they were all clean. Only wished that Cycling Jesus (Lance) was clean. Seems that was not the case, nor were many others. Glad to see that things seem to be getting better.
