This is the first time the man closest to Armstrong has unveiled his secrets of motivation, planning and execution. Whether mounting a difficult climb, managing a team of 30 riders and 40 support staff from a car hurtling along narrow roads or looking a future legend in the eye and willing him to believe, Bruyneel is, and always has been, the consummate winner. This is his story. I liked this more than the lance armstrong books, actually. Bill Strickland , Johan Bruyneel. The Climb tells the extraordinary story of Chris Froome's journey from a young boy in Kenya, riding through townships and past wild animals, and with few opportunities for an aspiring cyclist, to his unforgettable yellow jersey victory in the Tour de France.
The first in-depth look at Lance Armstrong's doping scandal, the phenomenal business success built on the back of fraud, and the greatest conspiracy in the history of sports. Lance Armstrong won a record-smashing seven Tours de France after staring down cancer, and in the process became an international symbol of resilience and courage. In a sport constantly dogged by blood-doping scandals, he seemed above the fray.
Then, in January , the legend imploded. He admitted doping during the Tours and, in an interview with Oprah, described his "mythic, perfect story" as "one big lie. For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare - poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a US Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes.
Writing from both the cutting edge of scientific discovery and the front-lines of elite athletic performance, National Magazine Award-winning science journalist Alex Hutchinson presents a revolutionary account of the dynamic and controversial new science of endurance. Johan Bruyneel knows what it takes to win.
In , this calculating Belgian and former professional cyclist looked Lance Armstrong in the eye and said, "Look, if were going to ride the Tour, we might as well win. We Might As Well Win takes listeners behind the scenes and inside the team car, as Bruyneel reveals the planning, training, strategy, and tactics that led to a record seven Tour de France victories with Armstrong and an eighth with Alberto Contador.
Through thrilling stories of his own racing career and those of the cyclists he has guided during his extraordinary career, Bruyneel reveals the keys to victory both in cycling and in life. As a long-time cyclist, I am predisposed to enjoy this book.go

It is a very interesting look into what drives Bruyneel and how he has managed his teams over the past 10 years. Cyclists and non-cyclists will enjoy the view from inside the team car.
One note: The narrator has a great voice and is easy to listen to. However, his pronunciation was terrible, and I cringed when he mangled nearly every non-American proper name like Liege, Alpe d'Huez, etc. I would have expected that he spend some time learning the proper pronunciation of cyclist names, city names, etc. Not what I was expecting. The stories about strategy in cycling were kind of interesting but the fact that they totally ignored the doping aspect of their success makes the reader feel cheated.
Don't waste your time with this one. To not admit to to the United States Postal Service team use of performance enhancing drugs is dishonest.
To deny the success of the authors teams due to performance enhancing drugs is as deplorable as Lance Armstrong's great lie. Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? Sorry, but we can't respond to individual comments. Recent searches Clear All. Update Location.
