Riis is the courageous autobiography of Danish cycling legend Bjarne Riis, who in 1996 won the Tour de France, only to call a press conference eleven years later in which he confessed to having taken performance-enhancing drugs in order to achieve that triumph.

Already an acclaimed bestseller in Denmark and Germany, Riis sees this intensely private Dane baring his soul in a book which describes his transition from shy young daydreamer to hardened, regular user of the banned substance EPO.

Riis never attempts to shirk the gravity of his actions, but a glimpse into the pressures and milieu of cycling partially explicates how he came to go down that path, and, perhaps, offers insights into how to prevent other, future athletes from doing so.

Captivating in its honesty, this title is a fascinating window into the world of professional road racing, told by someone who has been as closely involved in cycling over the past thirty years as anyone.
