Lance Armstrong did not disappoint in the 2005 Tour, delivering a storybook ending to his illustrious career and again demonstrating how unstoppable a solid team can be when backed with good strategy.
VeloNews recaps each stage with maps, stats, and profiles to cover not only Armstrong's sensational story, but also the emergence of bright new talents like Danish climber Michael Rasmussen, Spanish sensation Alejandro Valverde, and Discovery's rising star Paolo Savoldelli. Ambition, victory, heartbreak: there's more than one story at the Tour, and this year's book includes more interviews and a deeper perspective of the European racing scene than ever before. Rider diaries by Jan Ullrich and Magnus Beckstedt, and an added section to profile Lance's amazing career, make this the ultimate capstone.
The book contains two colour photo sections as well as black and white photographs throughout.
