This work presents the narrative and record of the 2006 tour de france cycle race. The 2006 Tour de France was positively riveting, from the events of the race to the drug scandal that surrounded it. Many of cycling's most promising stars were disqualified just days before the race got underway, but true to predictions, the Tour turned up some of the most exciting stage finishes in the history of the sport. American Floyd Landis captured and recaptured the yellow jersey and attention of cycling fans around the world with a stunning performance. But in a most ironic twist, the Tour ended as it began. Just days after Landis' victory lap on the Champs Elysee, controversy turned the race upside-down once more when the blood sample taken after his stage 17 win tested positive in a French lab. Drawing on the unique access of the "VeloNews" editorial team, "The 2006 Tour de France" records every moment of the race with masterful detail and poignant profiles. Complete with maps and stage profiles, behind-the-scenes stories, incisive interviews, and thorough daily reports, the 2006 Tour recap will delve into the race that shocked cycling fans and rocked the sport of cycling. This paperback also features color photo section.
