Inhaltsangabe: The stunningly candid autobiography of one of cycling's great names and the man who rode alongside Lance Armstrong for each of his seven Tour victories George Hincapie has always personified more than the sport in which he chose to compete, cycling, and his legacy will be more than the sum of his accomplishments on the road. It is also intertwined with the team-mates he helped to achieve success. As Lance Armstrong's trusted sidekick, he helped re-write the record books of the greatest cycling event in the world, the Tour de France. No other team-mate was with Lance for all seven of his wins. No one was closer to him as a friend or confidante and no one was closer to the scandal which would ultimately bring down Armstrong and so many of those around him. Told with stunning candour, 'The Loyal Lietenant' offers the most transparent and engaging account yet of the now infamous years of cycling's modern history. It is a book that will once again change our perceptions of what it means to be a sporting great.
George Hincapie is one of the most recognized cyclists in the world?a record seventeen-time Tour de France participant, Olympian, beloved teammate, and celebrated lead-out man for Lance Armstrong. Chronicling the exhilarating ride of his career, Hincapie takes us through his adrenaline-junkie amateur years to the Olympics, going professional, and reaching his true calling as "domestique"?a role in which Hincapie would lead Armstrong to seven straight Tour de France victories.
Respected as a natural cyclist and tireless team player, George earned a sterling reputation?which would enable him to rise above a confession that shocked the entire sports world, when he became a key witness in the doping case of Lance Armstrong. Revealing the role of drugs in cycling, why he chose to quit, and what led to the testimony that broke Armstrong's case, Hincapie makes an impassioned argument for a change in the sport. Interspersed with commentary from others in the cycling community, The Loyal Lieutenant offers an honest and compelling account of not only a dark period in professional cycling, but also the demands required of the best in the field.
