The 2000 autobiographical book by American cyclist Lance
Armstrong with Sally Jenkins.

The book was written shortly after Armstrong had won the
1999 Tour de France: he went on to win it six further times
in successive years, establishing a record (later revoked
due to his use of performance enhancing drugs).

In 1996, he had been diagnosed with testicular cancer, which
spread to his lungs, abdomen and brain, and was only given a
40 percent chance of living. This disrupted his career, but
his success on his return prompted elements in the media to
accuse him of doping.

In light of the revelations made by the USADA investigation
in 2012, the passages about doping in the book are doubtful.

The book covers his story from childhood to the 1999 Tour,
and the birth of his first child.

People around the world have found inspiration in the story
of Lance Armstrong—a world-class athlete nearly struck
down in his prime, who came back to win the world's most
grueling test of cycling, the Tour de France.

It's Not About the Bike is the story of Armstrong's journey
from inauspicious beginnings through triumph, tragedy,
transformation, and transcendence. Though he's a hero to
millions, he never adopts a hero's pose.

In his down-to earth Texas style, he tells of his childhood,
early success, near-fatal cancer, recovery, survivorship,
victory in the 1999 Tour de France, marriage, and first-time

Everyone knows Lance Armstrong is a passionate and fearless
competitor. It's Not About the Bike reveals what is truly
heroic about the man: his depth of character and generosity
of spirit.
