David Millar’s autobiography, Racing Through The Dark, has just arrived in the RoadCyclingUK mailbag ahead of its June 16 publication date.
The book, retailing at £18.99 for the hardback or £9.99 for the e-book, charts the Scotsman’s rise to fame as a Tour de France stage winner in 2000, suspension for two years after being arrested in 2004 for using EPO, and subsequent revival as world time trial silver medallist and Commonwealth Games champion in 2010.
“Here, in a full and frank autobiography, David Millar recounts the story from the inside: he doped because ‘cycling’s drug culture was like white noise’, and because of peer pressure,” reads the press release from publishers Orion.
“‘I doped for money and glory in order to guarantee the continuation of my status’. Seven years on from his arrest, Millar is clean and relective, and holds nothing back in this account of his dark years.”
