I've been an avid cyclist since getting my first Sting-ray for Christmas in 1964, and I follow professional cycling as well, so the subject of this book piqued my curiosity. I had not known of Frank Lenz previously. Kudos to Herlihy for his thorough research in reporting the tale. The book is a bit dense in sections, as Herlihy tries, I think, to authenticate his story by including every little tidbit of info (including meals, room accommodations, and so forth in great detail). I would've liked the narrative to speed along at a faster clip.

All in all, though, this is a fascinating read. Recommended.
