Description
Information
'Paid To Suffer' explores the spectrum of pro cycling, from the struggles of domestic racing in North America to the international racing scene in Europe, including both men's and women's road racing, cyclo-cross, and mountain biking. Going beyond the public persona of these riders, Rogers digs into the day-to-day details of the professional life: the endless hours of training, the nerve-wracking contract and sponsor negotiations, the travel, the hotels, the pressure to perform, dealing with the press and public, the excitement of the races, and the fearsome consequences of injury. Professional athletes must constantly address significant career choices - questions of trust with teammates and rivals, coaches and managers, sponsors and teams - and they do so largely alone, with few clear answers. 'Paid To Suffer' is the first book to reveal the true stories of life in the professional cycling ranks.
