BICYCLE RACING

Jackson introduces Americans to the European professional bike racing scene--particularly to the team tactics which surround the stars with ""domestiques"" who sacrifice their own chances, and to Eddy Merckx, the most visible and aggressive pro cyclist despite his defeat in the 1975 Tour de France. Some noticeable gear-shifting between racing rules and recaps, but an acceptably brisk run overall.
