Recensioner i media
"The most shocking doping memoir professional cycling has produced." -Daniel Friebe, British sports journalist "A remarkable story of a fallen cycling hero."-CyclingReview.nl "Brutally honest." -Cycling News "It's been a long time since there was so much ado about a cycling book. It's a shock when you realize that a cyclist has a rock 'n' roll life instead of a monk's existence. It's time to read it yourself and judge it." -Racefietsblog.nl "A staggering underworld of blood bags, testosterone patches, and injections. No one is spared." -Eric Palmen, BiografiePortaal "Thomas Dekker has done something brave here: He has opened sutured wounds with the hope that the rot will dry up. And for that alone we should be thankful." -Erik Raschke, CyclingTips "Let one thing be clear: For the average cycling lover, this is a hard confrontation with 'dirty' cycling." -Laurens De Greef, Bicycletta Read & Ride

Thomas Dekker is a Dutch former professional cyclist whose talent on the bike quickly took him to the top of the sport. He raced for The Netherlands in the 2004 Summer Olympic Games in Athens, won two Dutch National Time Trial Championships, and captured victories in the 2006 Tirreno-Adriatico and the 2007 Tour of Romandie. He rode for the Dutch Rabobank superteam and then Silence-Lotto before a retroactively tested sample returned positive for EPO. In 2009, Dekker was suspended for two years for the drug violation, and it was later confirmed during Operacion Puerto that Dekker was among the clients of Spanish doctor Eufemiano Fuentes. After his suspension, Dekker joined the American Garmin Development Team and rode for Garmin-Barracuda from 2012-2014. Dekker claims to have ridden clean for Jonathan Vaughters and he became a popular rider in the American peloton. He retired after an attempt on the World Hour Record in 2015. Thijs Zonneveld is a Dutch sports journalist and former professional cyclist. He covers the sport of cycling for Holland's biggest newspaper and serves as a commentator for Dutch public television. His work appears regularly in No.nl, Nusport.nl, and Wieler Magazine. Zonneveld received the award for the best Dutch sports journalist in 2016 for Descent.
