Armstrong, It’s Not About the Bike

Sisältää marginaaliveron

“I want to die at a hundred years old after screaming down an Alpine descent on bicycle at 75 miles per hour. I don’t do anything slow, not even breathe. I do everything at a fast cadence: eat fast, sleep fast.” At twenty-four, Lance Armstrong was already well on his way to becoming a sporting legend. Then, in October 1996, he was diagnosed with stage four testicular cancer – doctors gave him a 40% chance of survival. On that day Armstrong’s life changed forever and in typical fashion he met the challenge head on – this was one fight he was determined not to lose. As he battled against the cancer invading his body and the chemotherapy that threatened to sap his soul, he focussed on his training and drew strength from the people around him who never gave up. Just sixteen months after Armstrong was discharged from the hospital, he entered Tour de France, a race famed for its gruelling intensity, and won, in the fastest ever time. Just a few months after that, he became a father. It’s Not About the Bike is the story of one man’s inspirational battle against the odds, charting his process through triumph, tragedy and transformation. This is an awe-inspiring tale of immense courage and will. (Takakansiteksti)
