The Death of Marco Pantani: A Biography Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cyclist Marco Pantanis death is one of the most tragic events in recent sports history. After winning both the Tour de France and the Giro dItalia in 1998, he was expected to dominate cycling well into the next decade. Instead, he was caught in a blood-doping scandal, disappeared from view, and, in 2004, was found dead of cocaine poisoning. Matt Rendell tells Pantanis story with an investigative reporters zeal for the facts and a novelists skill for depicting deeper truths. He debunks the conspiracy theories that have circulated about Pantanis demise, and also reveals other startling findings about the dark underside of the cycling world.
