My friend is a professional power lifter and he suggested this movie- One of the best documentaries I have ever seen.

There are some pretty good books about it on the cycling side. Tyler Hamilton’s “The Secret Race” is a good read.

If you follow cycling still, they pop someone around bi-weekly these days...

And yes, Tyler Hamilton's book is a very good read.

The main thing Lance did wrong was how he handled it. If he would have just said "Yes, just like everyone else." he wouldn't be so disliked. It is an impossible sport. You have to use, they can't catch very many etc. And who did they give Lance's trophee's too? Another user that passed the tests? What a joke.

The doc is made by a amateur biker who starts doping wanting to test the wada labs

The head of the lab here agrees to do it then backs out setting him up with the Russian guy .

The shit hits fan in Russian at the same time and this guy is at the center of it.

To hear how the Russian s switched pee at the Sochi games is killer.lol

It gets crazy then as his friends die of heart attacks and he escapes.

The lance part falls BG the wayside early on.

Lance recently did a pod cast with the director of this movie. Must be worth a listen.
