From doping to redemption, this is the controversial, internationally bestselling tell-all memoir from the golden boy of Dutch cycling, Thomas Dekker.

About the Author

Thomas Dekker is a Dutch former professional cyclist. As one of the biggest talents in the sport, he catapulted to the top, participating in the Olympics and the Tour de France. His career highlights include winning Tirreno-Adriatico in 2006 and Tour de Romandie in 2007. Yet it all came crashing down when he was caught doping while with the Rabobank team. Dekker was suspended for two years and returned to racing in the summer of 2011 but never got back to his old level.

Thijs Zonneveld was a professional cyclist before he became a journalist and writer. He covers cycling for the biggest newspaper in Holland and works as an analyst for Dutch public television. He received the award for the best Dutch sports journalist in 2016 for The Descent.
