Rough Ride

£9.00

Paul Kimmage

First published in 1990, Rough Ride is one of the greatest books ever written about the life of a professional athlete. It is a powerful and frank account that breaks the law of silence surrounding the issue of drugs in sport. An eye-opening expose and a heartbreaking lament, it is a book that anyone interested in any sport should read. Almost twenty years later, Yellow Jersey is publishing an updated edition of this cycling classic, with a new foreword by the author which reflects on his life both inside and outside the sport.
