Lance Armstrong’s story of battling and beating testicular cancer and going on to take part in, and win, the Tour de France is an uplifting, emotional and engrossing read. Armstrong does not hold back on the harshness of cancer and the treatments he went through and is equally graphic about the gruelling training he undertakes for the Tour de France. An amazing book about love, strength, family, will power and courage.

Synopsis

It's Not About the Bike by Lance Armstrong

Lance Armstrong won the 1999 Tour de France in spectacular style, taking four stages and both a mountain and a time trial. His story is even more remarkable because he was diagnosed with stage 4 testicular cancer in October 1996.
