From winter training camp on the cobbled lanes of medieval Girona, Spain, to hard-earned stage victories in July''s Tour de France, to flesh-shredding crashes at the Tour of Spain in September, Argyle Armada: Behind the Scenes of the Pro Cycling Life delivers an unprecedented look at America''s most celebrated cycling team. Embedded with Garmin-Cervélo for its entire 2011 season, writer-photographer Mark Johnson brilliantly chronicles the team''s most intimate personal dramas and its public celebrations.
