Johan Bruyneel knows what it takes to win. In 1998, this calculating Belgian and former professional cyclist looked Lance Armstrong in the eye and said, "Look, if we’re going to ride the Tour, we might as well win." In that powerful phrase a dynasty was born.We Might AsWellWin takes readers behind the scenes and inside the team car, as Bruyneel reveals the planning, training, strategy, and tactics that led to a record seven Tour de France victories with Armstrong and an eighth with Alberto Contador. Through thrilling stories of his own racing career and those of the cyclists he has guided during his extraordinary career, Bruyneel reveals the keys to victory both in cycling and in life.
This paperback edition includes a new afterword on the 2008 season, with Bruyneel’s reflections on his record eleventh grand tour victory at the Giro d’Italia and the exclusion of his team Astana from the 2008 Tour de France.
