I enjoyed this book so much. It is the story of the building of the 7-Eleven cycling team in the 1980's by Jim Ochowitz. I liked the Mid-West connections of most of the early members of the team. Ochowitz, as most elite cyclists in those days, speed skated in the off season. Eric Heiden, of the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics fame was an early 7-Eleven team member. He was vitally important to American cycling because of his fame from his five speed skating gold medals. If you are a cycle racing fan you will want to read this book. ( )
