Lance Armstrong's War

One Man’s Battle Against Fate, Fame, Love, Death, Scandal, and a Few Other Rivals on the Road to the Tour de France

by Daniel Coyle ’87 (HarperCollins)


The author spent months in Armstrong’s training camp in Spain and emerged with a detailed picture of the driven cyclist and cancer survivor as he prepared for his sixth Tour de France race in 2004. Coyle translated that into a book Publishers Weekly lauded as “honest, personal and passionate.”

Coyle is a 1987 graduate of Notre Dame, a former senior editor of Outside magazine and the author of Hardball: A Season in the Projects.
