Overview

The Crooked Path to Victory: Drugs and Cheating in Professional Bicycle Racing by Les Woodland

The Crooked Path to Victory exposes the dishonest ways to which bicycle racers and managers have resorted over the years in an lighthearted but thorough manner.Whether it's in pursuit of the Yellow Jersey of the Tour de France or the Rainbow Jersey of the World Champion, professional bicycle racing has not always been fair play all the way.From the early days on, the sport has attracted more than its share of cheats. In recent years, the use of doping, i.e. performance-enhancing drugs, has been getting increasing publicity, resulting in tightened controls—but also in more lies and denials.
