While Millar’s first book, “Racing Through the Dark” (very much a must read), told the dramatic story of his dalliance with doping and subsequent redemption The Racer is a more general insight into life as a pro-cyclist. This does not make it any less enjoyable as a read however as Millar is a very cultured writer and he has ensured the tales from the Peloton are engaging and entertaining throughout. Whether discussing the role of the domestique, the team tactics for winning stages or tours or the personal achievements and disappointments Millar is always a fascinating narrator making this an excellent addition to any cycling bookshelf.
