Featuring contributions from: Emma O'Reilly, the soigneur for the U.S. Postal Service Team and one of the people responsible for bringing Lance Armstrong down as part of David Walsh's investigation; Betsy Andreu, wife of ex-professional cyclist Frankie Andreu and another Lance Armstrong nemesis; and Jen See, who interviews Marianne Vos, arguably the greatest cyclist in the world right now. When Marie Marvingt decided to ride the 1908 Tour de France she was told 'absolument, non!' Instead, she rode each stage fifteen minutes after the official racers had departed and finished all 4,488 kms of the parcours--a feat that only 36 of the 110 men who entered the race could equal. Her motto? 'I decided to do everything better, always and forever.' It's in the spirit of Breakneck Marie that this book has been written. These fresh and vibrant voices examine the sport from a new perspective to provide insights that rarely make it into the mainstream: what is it like to be a top women rider or to work in their support team? Where is the women's sport heading and when will more women be represented at the highest level of sport's governance?
