What makes it particularly interesting for me personally is that this is a team that is beyond dedicated to racing drug-free and they are having amazing results while helping to keep the sport clean. Aside from that, they are on the, shall we say, lower end of overall team budgets yet they have outstanding status which is what really makes a great team to me (it's not all about Yankee-sized payrolls and one or two superstars, but rather this is a true cohesive team with many many great riders to root for). I mean come on, 2011 had them win not only the bone-jarring Paris-Roubaix race but they really had an incredible showing in the Tour de France - which each year keeps me glued to my TV for the entire month of July!!
This book has a wonderful symmetry and balance between the photos and the writing which gives the perfect amount of insight and behind the scenes facets. I really can't recommend it enough. Flipping through it is getting me pumped up for the 2012 Tour!! I cant wait!!!!
Johnson's photos and the hardcover format will tempt you to leave this on the coffee table, but his witty, vivid insights will likely bring you back to it again and again. I couldn't recommend this book more strongly and actually just purchased another copy for my father's birthday.
