4.0 out of 5 stars Tactics of the Tour de France, April 27, 2010
This review is from: We Might As Well Win: On the Road to Success with the Mastermind Behind Eight Tour de France Victories (Paperback)
As a Mountain Biker I race in a sport where it is your skills and determination against a harsh course and a dozen other competitors. In Mountain Biking there is one goal. In the Tour de France, there are countless racers, moving as teams, each with specialized skills and a number of simultaneous goals. And that is the part we can see with our eyes. Half the battle is never seen. Johan Bruyneel describes the stage by stage calculations that go into completing and winning the greatest bike race in the world. He describes his own experiences as a racer as well as those of seven time champion Lance Armstrong. In this book he opens the reader to a world of bold experiments in training and racing. These include mountain climbs in the freezing rain but sometimes result in cliffside crashes and lost opportunities. He uses wins and losses as a platform for future success noting that every loss is behind you while a win is always just around the corner. If nothing else you will get to know the mind and attitude of the most successful team director in the history of biking and at the least you will fall further in love with the sport itself.
