Bought a new Rolex and BMW which "became my statement to the world that I had arrived". Ugh.

His reason for doping and lying about it for a decade is the ole "I didn't have a choice" excuse. Yeah, it was a life or death situation, indeed.

If you want to read an excellent book about the behind the scenes doping with Lance, read Tyler Hamilton's The Secret Race, written before Lance finally admitted he doped.

Not much new here, after publication of all the Armstrong, Hamilton and Landis books about that era. Hincapie was undoubtedly one of the nice guys of the peloton, but the book is pretty self-serving. Like a lot of pro athletes, George sure does like his bling!

A great look into what it means to be a pro cyclist with and without drugs and the goings on of the peloton during the early 2000s.
