From Lance to Landis; Inside the American Doping Controversy at the Tour de France
Walsh, David,
ISBN: 034549962X
Ballantine Books, New York, 2007. First Edition
 Hardcover (1/4 Boards 3/4 Boards) Hardcover (1/4 Boards 3/4 Boards). Very Good/Very Good. First Edition. Glossary, dramatis personae and author's note.

Colour photographic dustwrapper with black and white coloured titles to the front panel and backstrip. Colour photograph of author to the rear fold over panel. For eight years the Tour to France was ruled by two men Lance Armstrong and Floyd Landis. On the surface they appeared to be amazing athletes, who, overcame tremendous odds to win one of the world's most demanding athletic competitions. "But is this a true story, or is there a darker version of the truth, one that sadly reflects the realities of sports in the twenty-first century? Landis's title is now in jeopardy because blood tests revealing that his testosterone levels were eleven times those of a normal athlete strongly suggest that he used banned substances, and four years similar allegations have swirled around Armstrong. Now internationally acclaimed award-winning journalist David Walsh gives an explosive account of the shadow side of professional sports. In this electrifying, controversial, and scrupulously documented expose, Walsh explores the many facets of the cyclist doping scandals in the United States and abroad." from the front fold over panel blurb.
