    I have read a fair bit about professional cycle racing, as would anyone else who rides to work, shops, family, for exercise and to race This was different for one simple reason.As much as Roche covers the sport from the inside, and from a unique , Irish, angle he includes much of himself than others What results is a true surprise for a sports book it genuinely made tears form and laughs escape.Its a lovely book and the author s genuine honesty shines through.
