"When Lance Armstrong admitted doping during the Tours de France, he left the world with more questions than answers. Who had helped him? Where had the drugs come from? How had he managed to fool the anti-doping and cycling authorities as well as his many sponsors for so long despite hundreds of drug tests and vigorous private investigations? Wall Street Journal reporters Reed Albergotti and Vanessa O’Connell broke the story about Lance Armstrong in real time but sensed there was much more to uncover. After three years of extensive reporting, deep sourcing, and more than one hundred interviews with nearly every key player, including Armstrong, they are the undisputed authorities on the story. In Wheelmen they bring us the first in-depth look at Lance Armstrong’s doping scandal and the phenomenal business success built on the back of fraud. It connects the dots between all of the key players, revealing a multi-million dollar business as well as a huge sports conspiracy."
