Description

In Shadows on the Road, Michael Barry explores the dreams and passions of cycling in this beautiful, moving and controversial account of life at the heart of the Peloton, from US Postal to Team Sky.

In 2012, veteran cyclist Michael Barry announced his retirement from the sport after fourteen years. Weeks later he testified against his former teammate Lance Armstrong, as part of the USADA investigation. In Shadows on the Road, Barry recounts what it was like to ride for US Postal and Team Sky alongside Lance Armstrong, Mark Cavendish, Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome, and how his early idealistic dreams and passions were compromised by a sport in crisis. Offering a dramatic insight into the life and mind of a professional sportsman - the pressures, sacrifices, fears, crashes, injuries and neuroses - Shadows on the Road is a must-read for all cycling and sports fans alike.
