Overview

In 1996 Danish cyclist Bjarne Riis won the Tour de France. Eleven years later he called a press conference and confessed to taking EPO on the way to achieving the ultimate cycling triumph.


In RIIS, his sensational autobiography – already an acclaimed bestseller in Denmark and Germany – the notoriously private Dane bares his soul. From the shy eight-year-old who fell in love with cycling to the champion cyclist turned banned substance user, and finally the Team Saxo Bank owner determined to deliver a ‘clean’ Tour de France winner.


Brutally honest and as furiously fast-paced as one of his breakaways from the peloton, RIIS reveals a reflective man who doesn’t shy away from the darker episodes of his life and is resolved to learn from his mistakes.
