Bad Blood: The Secret Life of the Tour de France
Even the biggest cycling fan can one day wake up to find that he has lost his faith
Bad Blood is the story of Jeremy Whittle's journey from unquestioning fan to Tour de France insider and confirmed sceptic. It's about broken friendships and a sport divided; about having to choose sides in the war against doping; about how galloping greed and corporate opportunism have led the Tour de France to the brink of destruction.
Part personal memoir, part devastating exposé of a sport torn apart by drugs and scandal, Bad Blood is a love letter to one man's past, and a warning to cycling's future.
‘Whatever you think about doping, you must read this book ... Well-balanced, considered, compelling’ Rouleur
