    Story
    (276)

    The first in-depth look at Lance Armstrong's doping scandal, the phenomenal business success built on the back of fraud, and the greatest conspiracy in the history of sports. Lance Armstrong won a record-smashing seven Tours de France after staring down cancer, and in the process became an international symbol of resilience and courage. In a sport constantly dogged by blood-doping scandals, he seemed above the fray. Then, in January 2013, the legend imploded. He admitted doping during the Tours and, in an interview with Oprah, described his "mythic, perfect story" as "one big lie."

    Gabriel says: "Detailed and balanced account"
    "Terrible Narration!"

    What did you like best about Wheelmen? What did you like least?

    insight into the year years of Lance and business of cycling.


    How could the performance have been better?

    You would think that for a book that holds itself out as the definitive work describing the rise and fall of Armstrong they could find a narrator that could pronounce the rider names, ride locations and race names accurately. He completely butchered almost all the names of the important races, riders and team names.

    Sidney Archer has the world. A husband she loves. A job at which she excels, and a cherished young daughter. Then, as a plane plummets into the Virginia countryside, everything changes. And suddenly there is no one whom Sidney Archer can trust.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    different narrator


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jonathan Marosz?

    no way!


    Any additional comments?

    I could not listen to much more than two hours. I gave up
