...Never did find out "How"!

This review is from: Team 7-Eleven: How an Unsung Band of American Cyclists Took on the World-and Won (Kindle Edition)
This book had so much promise and actually started well enough.

I wasn't expecting it to unearth secrets of the peleton

Wow, what an amazing ride!

This book follows the 7-Eleven teams inception and the sometimes humorous, sometimes cringe worthy exploits of the team and their foray into professional cycling. I picked up this book after reading another cycling book (Slaying the Badger), and it's mention of the all American teams first Tour de France and the exciting first week they had.

The book follows the teams origins in the Mid-West, and the original band of characters which were also speed skaters and Olympian
