"[Slaying the Badger is] a gripping narrative of this psychological and physical three-week war." — Wall Street Journal
“Rich in drama and emotion. As racing books go, Moore’s book just might be the greatest ever.” — Outside magazine
"[Slaying the Badger offers] intriguing insight into one of professional cycling's greatest rivalries...Where Slaying the Badger succeeds is in making such a well-known story so readable." — BikeRadar.com
"Richard Moore's excellent new book Slaying the Badger reexamines the mythology of this great race, attempting to shed new light on the motivations of these two great riders and what really happened on the roads of France in the summer of '86. What helps set Moore's book apart is the array of characters he brings to the story...A thrilling read." — Red Kite Prayer
"[Moore assembles] a stellar cast of interviewees, about twenty in all…The stars are, inevitably, Hinault and LeMond themselves, both with their own memories of what did and did not happen. But they're almost outshone by three of the supporting cast...For those three interviews alone, Slaying the Badger is worth reading.” — Podium Cafe
"Both men invite Moore into their homes: a privilege that clearly took some badger-like tenacity to secure. But it was worth the effort as Moore gains fresh insight into the rivalry." — East Anglian Daily Times
"Captivating...Slaying the Badger is a mixture of clear-eyed journalistic analysis and unashamed nostalgia." — The Times Literary Supplement
"Masterly, relevant and intriguing." — Washingmachinepost.net
"Moore entertainingly unravels the complexities of the relationships within the peloton." — Guardian
"Moore magnificently offers a fresh perspective, bringing alive this supreme tussle...A gripping read." — Blazin' Saddles, a blog from Eurosport.com
