Review of “The Comeback”


My latest for PEZ is a review of “The Comeback.” My BLUF:

For those who just want the BLUF (bottom line up front): The Comeback is a great book. It’s well written and thoroughly researched with extensive footnotes. It’s the “backstory” of those 8 seconds that separated LeMond from Fignon. Although more than 300 pages long, it’s an engrossing and hard to put down read. If you’re a Greg LeMond fan, The Comeback is a must read because it’s a detailed accounting of his career and – more importantly – his life and person off the bike. It’s also an important reminder that American cycling did not begin and end with Lance Armstrong.

But read the review and the book. Cheers!
