On a fateful night in 2009, Tyler Hamilton and Daniel Coyle met for dinner in Boulder, Colorado. Over the next eighteen months, Hamilton would tell Coyle his story, and his sport's story, in explosive detail, never sparing himself in the process. In a way, he became as obsessed with telling the truth as he had been with winning the Tour de France just a few years before. The truth would set Tyler free, but would also be the most damning indictment yet of teammates like Lance Armstrong.

The result of this determination is The Secret Race, a book that pulls back the curtain and takes us into the secret world of professional cycling like never before. A world populated by unbelievably driven – and some flawed – characters. A world where the competition used every means to get an edge, and the options were stark. A world where it often felt like there was no choice.

    Just an amazing read. I love cycling, and believe it or not, I still like Lance. This book is an eye opener to the world of SPORTS in general and not just cycling. If people still believe that Professional Sports are clean, well you are mistaken. Tyler tells a very truthful story and even after everything he has done, I would still shake his hand if I ever met him and tell him how much I enjoyed watching him ride.

    I watch the Tour every year, and every year I want to believe everyone is clean, that it's natural ability. Well if you read this book you'll realise it's all a lie (or a hell of a good story). You can make up your own mind, either way Tyler Hamilton is to be commended for telling the tail.

    Dan Coyle is a great writer ... Check out anything he's written. Tyler was once a hero, then wasn't .... And now through this book a ray of sunshine for a great sport which during his time was rife with cheating. Well done Tyler .... A brilliant book. Read it people!

    I found this book absorbing and enlightening. I hope the effort and courage of Tyler Hamilton to admit the truth and purge himself from having to live a life of pretence will help both him and the sport of cycling (which I love!). Highly recommended!

    A great read I couldn't put down. The courage to open up like he has, Tyler deserves an amazing amount of respect. My opinion of high level of cycling in the "lance era" has changed for ever.
