The stunningly candid autobiography of one of cycling's great names and the man who rode alongside Lance Armstrong for each of his now infamous seven Tour victoriesGeorge Hincapie has always personified more than the sport in which he chose to compete, cycling, and his legacy will be more than the sum of his accomplishments on the road.

No other team-mate was with Lance for all seven of his wins. No one was closer to him as a friend or confidante and no one was closer to the scandal which would ultimately bring down Armstrong and so many of those around him.Told with stunning candour, `The Loyal Lietenant' offers the most transparent and engaging account yet of the now infamous years of cycling's modern history.It is a book that will once again change our perceptions of what it means to be a sporting great.

From the Back Cover:

George Hincapie is one of the most recognized cyclists in the world—a record seventeen-time Tour de France participant, Olympian, beloved teammate, and celebrated lead-out man for Lance Armstrong. It was his sterling reputation that enabled him to publicly rise above a doping confession that shocked not only the cycling community but the entire sports world when he became a key witness in the case of Lance Armstrong and drugs in cycling. For the first time since that confession, "Big George" reflects on his years as a world-class rider, offering an honest and compelling account of not only a dark period in professional cycling but the demands required of the best in the field.

Hincapie's life has been intrinsically tied to the sport he loves. Raised in Queens, New York, in a tight-knit Colombian family, he grew up with his father's love of cycling and the Colombian "cycling warrior" archetype. Chronicling the exhilarating ride of his career, he takes us through his adrenaline-junkie amateur years to the Olympics, going professional, and reaching his true calling as Lance Armstrong's most prized "domestique"—a role in which Hincapie would lead his then best friend to seven straight Tour de France victories.

In The Loyal Lieutenant, Hincapie speaks openly about his relationship with Armstrong, which was so integral to both of their successes. He addresses how he himself began doping and why he chose to quit long before the headline-making revelations—and, finally, what led to the testimony that broke Armstrong's case. The Loyal Lieutenant is George Hincapie's story: the per-sonal evolution of a cycling superhero coming clean about his past to, he hopes, help restore honor to the sport he loves.

About the Author:

George Hincapie is one of the most recognized riders in the world, with numerous world championships, national championships and professional victories to his credit. George is the only team-mate to have played a pivotal role in all seven Lance Armstrong victories. He's also the only supporting rider to ever be on a Tour winning team nine times. This is his first book.Craig Hummer was a seven-time U.S. Ocean Ironman Champion and winner of over forty National and International Lifesaving Titles. The Emmy-nominated sports broadcaster has been involved in the `alternative' and `action/lifestyle sports' markets for over twenty years; first as a professional athlete in the sport of `Ocean Ironman' racing, then as a commentator who has now widened his expertise into multiple sports.
