Riis – Stages of Light and Dark is the sensational autobiography of Bjarne Riis, the Danish cycling legend who won the 1996 Tour de France. Eleven years after the 1996 Tour, he called a press conference and confessed to taking performance-enhancing drugs to achieve this ultimate cycling triumph.

 

In this autobiography, already an acclaimed bestseller in Denmark and Germany, the notoriously private Dane bares his soul. From the shy, young daydreamer who fell in love with cycling as an eight-year-old, to the hardened, regular user of banned blood booster EPO. While never shirking the seriousness of his actions, Riis does attempt to explain the pressures and attitudes within cycling at the time that let him down a dark path that he now condemns. Brutally honest and as furiously fast-paced as one of his breakaways from the peloton, Riis is a powerful insight into the life and mind of one of the sport’s key figures as well as a window into the world of professional road racing. There are not many people who have been involved in cycling to the extent that Riis has over the last 30 years and readers will be surprised by how open the normally taciturn Dane has been in his autobiography.
