The authors investigate doping in cycling, once considered one of the most closely guarded secrets in sports, and document the widespread corruption that ensued. Narrator Santino Fontana uses a variety of European accents, when appropriate, for those close to the sport. At the crux of the doping scandal is Lance Armstrong, whose renowned prowess on the bike (multiple Tour de France titles) and compelling personal story (cancer survivor) are matched only by his stubborn, controlling temperament. Fontana uses a brash, almost impatient, voice for Armstrong. With meticulous reporting and vivid accents, the authors and narrator peel back the layers of a worthy, though not very likable, biographical subject. It's a revealing ride.
