Not yet rated | write a review

The stunningly candid autobiography of one of cycling''s great names and the man who rode alongside Lance Armstrong for each of his seven Tour victories

George Hincapie has always personified more than the sport in which he chose to compete, cycling, and his legacy will be more than the sum of his accomplishments on the road. It is also intertwined with the team-mates he helped to achieve success.

As Lance Armstrong''s trusted sidekick, he helped re-write the record books of the greatest cycling event in the world, the Tour de France. No other team-mate was with Lance for all seven of his wins. No one was closer to him as a friend or confidante and no one was closer to the scandal which would ultimately bring down Armstrong and so many of those around him.

Told with stunning candour, "The Loyal Lieutenant" offers the most transparent and engaging account yet of the now infamous years of cycling''s modern history.

It is a book that will once again change our perceptions of what it means to be a sporting great.
