Publisher Description

By his eighteenth birthday David Millar was living and racing in France, sleeping in rented rooms, tipped to be the next English-speaking Tour winner. A year later he'd realised the dream and signed a professional contract. He perhaps lived the high life a little too enthusiastically - he broke his heel in a fall from a roof after too much drink - and before long the pressure to succeed had tipped over into doping. Here, in a full and frank autobiography, David Millar recounts the story from the inside: he doped because 'cycling's drug culture was like white noise', and because of peer pressure. 'I doped for money and glory in order to guarantee the continuation of my status.' Five years on from his arrest, Millar is clean and reflective, and holds nothing back in this account of his dark years.

A fantastic read

David Millar is such an inspiration and is even more so after reading this book. I am so glad I got to see him ride at the 2014 Commonwealth games in Glasgow!

Don't hesitate to buy this, you will love it! I recommend it 100%.

A look at the grey

Millar kept me fascinated with what’s to come in the following pages. I grew to like the man on TV and watching him ride, even knowing his past, now after reading this I understand the man better.

A great read.

Good read, but a cheats a cheat

Good read, found it interesting but Millar claiming it was the tour that made him take drugs and he didn't want is a joke. "Everyone was taking it so I did". You are a cheat end of.
