Sobre o livro
British Cycling and The Cost of Gold. An investigation into the phenomenally successful British Cycling; how did it become so successful, and at what cost? By 2008 Team GB, boosted by massive lottery funding and a hungry new generation of leaders, dominated Olympic cycling totally. Soon, Team Sky, a British road racing squad with roots in that Olympic programme, would dominate the Tour de France. But now disaster looms. Allegations of sexism, bullying and complicity with drug taking threaten the reputation and the funding of British Cycling, the government body... Is theirs a healthy culture, or has the will to win led to poor ethics and unfairness?
