The popularity of American bicycle racing has ebbed and flowed over the years, but thanks to the American's decade of dominance in European road racing, including the Tour de France, competitive cycling in America is seeing a popularity greater than at any other time since the early 20th Century when bike races outdrew all other American sports combined. This book not only documents the glorious history of American cycling but also its flourishing future. Included are chapters on six day races, road racing, track racing, BMX, mountain bike racing, cyclo-cross, and a step over the pond to some famous European classics being won by an unprecedented number of Americans, including the Tour de France. Good visual support from each era of cycling with historic and current photography. Sidebars containing oral history from key players in all specialties.

From the Back Cover:

· Discover America’s first bicycle racing superstars. Is Lance Armstrong truly the best of all time? Maybe not.

· Follow the action at key U.S. and international races that paved the way for sponsorship dollars, American pro teams, and dominating American cyclists like Andy Hampsten, Greg LeMond, Lance Armstrong, Tyler Hamilton, and George Hincapie.

· Witness nearly a century of drugs, doping, and scandals, from cocaine use during the six-day races in the late1890s, to blood boosting at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, to the scandal-plagued 2006 Tour de France victory
by American Floyd Landis.

· Look to the future as new U.S. stage races form, Under 23 development teams thrive, and new heroes of American cycling begin to emerge.
