Pretty good depiction of the 2009 Tour de France and racing season. While a little heavy on the biking terminology, there was nothing too daunting for someone who has no prior knowledge of racing lingo. Perhaps could have looked at Armstrong a bit more critically, but I didn't see the "starstruck" author that some reviewers mentioned. I was surprised to have enjoyed the read as much as I did, and may turn out a converted fan of international cycling. I'll definitely be following next year's Tour de France.
