Just in time for the summer and sure to take care of your beach reading needs. I’d buy it, but I already know how it ends.
…â€œI did not use performance-enhancing drugs in the 2006 Tour de France or any other time in my career,â€ Landis writes in the book. â€œAll I ever did was train.â€
That much we already knew. Deny, deny, deny.
…In an epilogue, Landis writes that he witnessed Geogheganâ€™s phone call and was shocked by his managerâ€™s attempt to intimidate LeMond by bringing up LeMondâ€™s previously undisclosed history of being sexually abused as a child. So shocked, he writes, that he immediately decided Geoghegan should be fired.
â€œThe only thing I knew right away was that Will needed to go,â€ Landis writes. â€œI went to his room and helped him pack his things.â€
Oh. Really. Why didn’t you hand him his walking papers right then and there?
Geoghegan went to the hearing with Landis the next day and sat behind Landisâ€™s defense table, and was not fired until after LeMond testified.
That doesn’t really look good, now does it?
Can this end any way but badly?by
