Bill Strickland is editor with Bicycling Magazine. He wrote the book Ten Points about growing up with a terribly abusive father and his quest for glory in the world of competitive cycling. He’s got a new book coming out about Lance Armstrong called: Tour de Lance: The Extraordinary Story of Lance Armstrong’s Fight to Reclaim the Tour de France. To promote this new book there are a couple of chances to meet Bill and here him talk about his insights into one of the greatest racers of all time.
1-(from Bicycling Magazine) On Monday (July 12) from 10 – 11am est, Bicycling editor at large Bill Strickland will host a live web chat on Bicycling.com about this year’s Tour de France, and about his recently published book “Tour de Lance.” The book offers a year-long, behind the scenes account of Armstrong’s comeback, revealing details about the Armstrong / Contador rivalry, the inner workings of the TDF and Lance’s true motivation for returning to the sport. While reporting the book, Strickland had some incredible experiences – he’s the only reporter to ever have ridden in Armstrong’s team car.
Monday is a rest day for Tour riders, so the chat should help fans get their TDF fix for the day.
