Signing with Author Daniel de Vise

Please join us in welcoming Daniel de Vise, author of The Comeback: Greg LeMond, the True King of American Cycling, and a Legendary Tour de France, for a reading and sigining!

The Comeback chronicles the life of one of America’s greatest athletes, Greg LeMond - the first American to win the Tour de France, the world’s pre-eminent bicycle race. Nine months later, LeMond lay in a hospital bed, his life in peril after a hunting accident, his career as a bicycle racer seemingly over. And yet, barely two years after this crisis, LeMond mounted a comeback. With the kind of narrative drive that propels books like Moneyball, and a fierce attention to detail, Daniel de Visé reveals the dramatic, ultra-competitive inner world of a sport rarely glimpsed up close, and builds a compelling case for LeMond as its great American hero.

This event is in partnership with the Riverside Bicycle Club. A ticket to the signing will be given with a purchase of the book.
