But others in the peloton also saw great significance, young riders like Romain Bardet thought if he could win then maybe they could as well. The “sulphurous Tours de France (1999-2005)” and the “EPO decade” are more a small stain on the carpet than excrement smeared on the walls of the sport.

I read in CN the excerpt about the way he left Vaughter’s team and it really raised several big question marks about the way that team was being managed and how did it change so much (did it? Very rarely in sports do regular mortals who are undoubtedly athletic get to race against these hyper talented youngsters (and get our hats handed to us! Dan also discusses every aspect of the professional cyclist's life - food, discipline, money, dreams, friendship and betrayal.The book is packed with anecdotes to the point where some are almost mentioned in passing, his decision to change nationality gets less than page when it could be a bigger deal. While Martin has spoken in interviews about how he “ almost got used to seeing cyclists being led away in handcuffs”, Chased by Pandas doesn’t go to those dark places. The good vibes he sent through the peloton were rewarded by a Most Aggressive Rider prize at the 2018 Tour de France, where he took his trophy on the final podium on the Champs-Elysees. In his free time, Dan wrote a monthly column in Europe's greatest cycling magazine, Procyclin g, over an unusually long period, from 2008 to 2021.

Now the headings mention phobias but it’s more a theme to explore rather than a catalogue of negatives. But about half way this tiny stripling of a lad rocketed out of the bunch to disappear up the lane ahead.So, no, thanks, I’ll refuse to read Dan’s autobiography and use the spared time in a more constructive way.
