Book Lance Armstrong - My Comeback: Up Close and Personal. A full-colour photographic journey into Lance Armstrong's extraordinary 2009 Tour de France comeback year.
After his record-breaking 7th Tour win achieved after successfully battling the cancer that very nearly killed him - Lance Armstrong spent three years in retirement. In September 2008 he announced his shock decision to return to professional cycling. Alongside 220 spectacular behind-the-scenes photographs, Lance will tell his inspiring story, moment-by-moment, in his own words. Determined to bring his cancer foundation's 'Livestrong' message to the world, his exceptional cycling in the 2009 Tour saw him placed third in the overall rankings. At 37 years of age, he is the oldest top-three finisher in over 30 years. His incredible journey to a podium placement is charted through exclusive photographs by his personal photographer. The stunning pictures, along with his diary entries, make for a deeply personal window into his day-to-day world and his 2009 Tour battle. It includes his gruelling training regime, the fight back from a broken collar bone, constant drugs tests, his intense rivalry with teammate and 2009 Tour Winner Alberto Contador, and, of course, crossing that final finish line.
