This is the story of what it takes for young Americans to make it in professional cycling. Only thirty-six Americans have competed in the Tour de France since the world's greatest bicycle race began in 1903. That's not too many more than the twelve Americans who have walked on the moon. It's far fewer than the more than 340 Americans who, as of 2006, had reached the summit of Mount Everest.
For an American cyclist to break into professional European cycling and reach the Tour de France is to scale a lofty mountain"and"venture into a strange new world. But rising stars such as Lawson Craddock of Texas, Ben King of Virginia, Taylor Phinney of Colorado, Cole House of Wisconsin, and Tyler Farrar of Washington state are doing just that as they endure crashes, cold rain, cobblestones, crosswinds, and culture shock on their road to cycling stardom.
This is the story of the next generation--of riders not yet tainted by drug scandals, of riders still bursting with hope and potential. This is the story American cycling fans need right now.
