Kurzbeschreibung

The inside story of Team Sky's 2013 Tour de France challenge. After the victory of Bradley Wiggins and Team Sky in the 2012 Tour de France, the pressure was on the team to repeat their success in 2013. When Wiggins had to pull out of the defence of his yellow jersey, attention moved to Chris Froome, who had finished as runner-up the year before. Could he bring about back-to-back victories for the UK and for Team Sky? With team principal Sir Dave Brailsford at the helm, the levels of expectation were high. Nothing less than a win would do.

Embedded within the team was top sportswriter David Walsh, who had been covering the sport for four decades. As the man who had done more than any other journalist to reveal the lies of Lance Armstrong, he has the reputation for exposing the dark secrets that cycling would want to keep hidden. His inside story, from how Team Sky prepared for the Tour de France through to Froome's emphatic victory, is supported by insights from all the key members of the team, and provides a definitive account of a dramatic race that gripped cycling fans around the world.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

David Walsh is chief sportswriter for the Sunday Times and has won the UK Sportswriter of the Year title four times. For many years, he was one of the few journalists prepared to question Lance Armstrong's record, and his account of that struggle was published in Seven Deadly Sins, which won the British Sports Book Awards Biography of the Year prize and was shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year prize.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Sorry David 21. Dezember 2013
Von GaryBerger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I admire David Wash for being the only journalist with the courage to go after Lance Armstrong when he was the alpha dog of cycling, but this book was a big letdown. I agree with the other reviewer, way too much time is wasted on denials of doping. That's bad enough, but when he is not reiterating how clean Sky is then he is describing everyone on the team in terms designed to make you believe they walk on water. It's the most un-subtle hagiography I've ever read.
When he finally talks about the race itself, it's interesting but it almost comes as an aside. Before long he is back to denials of doping and more hagiography.
I've been following cycling for almost 40 years, starting in the days when the entire TDF would be run without a single mention in the US media other than in cycling magazines. I have loads of books on the sport and this is the only one I've been unable to finish.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Don't waste your money 10. Dezember 2013
Von Susan L. Tomlinson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is not really a very good book. Every other page is an assertion that Team Sky is not doping. OK, I get it. Move on. Tell me something interesting that you've learned by being embedded. Tell me what they eat. How they train. How they get along with each other. What it is like to be a professional cyclist, or a team mechanic. Instead, we get this, over and over: "They're not doping. They're not doping."

Fine. Make your argument that they are not doping--once--and then move on and tell me something interesting, please. My goodness, I am so sick of hearing about doping.

Also, the conversational asides by the author are very distracting and not professional. Surely an editor looked at this?

1.0 von 5 Sternen Team Sky Homerism 21. Januar 2014
Von Youngbin Park - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I thought because this was written by David Walsh, there would be some objectivism. Basically each chapter goes like this. People accuse Team Sky of doping, but from my observations that's not true. He talks about the character of the people in the team and how they just can't be part of doping because they have great characters and we should believe in them and David Walsh's opinion. This is my first amazon review I have ever written. That's how terrible this book is.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Good book for the bike junkie 21. Januar 2014
Von Theresa Dickison - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a cyclist and as such, like to read about the pros in my sport. I'm one of those that watches EVERY day of the Tour de France every July so you've been warned!

One of the fun things about watching the Tour is trying to identify the dynamics and inner workings of the teams. You just know that there has to be stuff going on there that we don't know about (just like the NFL or MLB). This book actually takes you into the inner workings of Team Sky as observed by a journalist who was invited to embed with them. The time period that Walsh covers is approximately the period between the 2012 and 2013 tours.

Pretty much every aspect of running a bike team is explored here. You don't get just the cyclists' story but also the story of all the people it takes to get a cycling team to the Tour (and it's a LOT as it turns out). The characters behind the scenes are just as interesting as the public faces that you see (the sougniers are a particular hoot).

Walsh doesn't shy away from the doping aspects of the sport either. Like it or not, that pretty much dominates every conversation about cycling these days. Maybe someday it won't but not quite yet. Team Sky is famous (infamous?) for having an extreme zero-tolerance policy on doping and Walsh explores that subject thoroughly.

I'm always suspicious of writers getting too close to their subjects when they spend that much time with them but I think David Walsh was pretty even-handed. He even wonders at a couple points if he is being objective enough or is starting to drink the Sky kool-aid. I tend to believe that if he is asking those questions, then he's probably doing okay. Walsh doesn't shy away from asking about controversial subjects either such as a doctor that Sky hired who turned out to be involved in doping previously in his career. He also writes about the Chris Froome-Bradley Wiggins relationship and the tension that exists there. There are some parts that I remember reading and thinking that Team Sky would definitely not like this particular passage so I think that Walsh tried to be even-handed.

Walsh was one of the journalists that was suspicious of Lance Armstrong and is honest about how he felt very betrayed by that whole scandal not just as a journalist but also as a cycling fan. I liked that particular passage because I felt quite the same and it was nice to have it articulated in a concise manner.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Missed opportunity 15. April 2014
Von peterinnewjersey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Far too many dialogues or explanations why Team Sky is clean - every 5 or so pages the drugs theme comes up again and again - it's almost obsessive and becomes a real drag. David gives no real insight into the racing or the training or the athletes themselves and what they go through during a grand tour. Must be one of the most forgettable cycling books I've read and I love cycling and reading about it !
