Breaking The Chain

Drugs and Cycling - The True Story




"A moving and spirited account of lying and cheating on behalf of some of the biggest names in cycling" Independent

On 8 July 1998 Festina team soigneur Willy Voet was stopped by the police. In his car were the drugs the team needed if they were to have any chance of playing a competitive part in the 1998 Tour de France. The car was searched, he was immediately arrested and so the story that has been undermining the sport of cycling for over 30 years, was at last exposed. Cocaine, amphetamines, EPO, heroin - all these are now considered not optional but necessary, not to win but just to compete in the Tour de France. Details of how these drugs are obtained, mixed together to make cocktails, administered and concealed are all included in this graphic and uninhibited account."A truly horrifying book" Time Out
