La vía sabrosa al sexo sagrado life The other issue I had trouble with was how Fignon seems to contradict himself a Textbook of Clinical Hemodynamics lot when talking about drugs There is one passage I found hilarious To understand that different times in cycling cannot really be compared you have to be aware that never in my entire career did anyone talk to me or anyone near me about doping Occasionally someone would ask Have you taken something But that was it And most of the time it was not viewed as cheating which must seem completely incrediblePossibly he didn t mean to make it sound Running to the Edge: A Band of Misfits and the Guru Who Unlocked the Secrets of Speed like he was saying that it wasn t doping because it wasn t called that but that certainly sounds Down and Out in Paris and London like itThe one aspect that was good was the description of the behind the scenes directeurs sportifs drama So just for that it might be a good read
