Occassional thoughts about orienteering

A book worth reading?
A few days ago I picked up a book, Lance Armstrong's War, by Daniel Coyle.
If you're an orienteer, chances are you're also a fan of suffering sports and suffering athletes. Armstrong is right up there with Bjorn Daehlie and Jorgen Martensson as a great suffering sport athlete.
I've read the first 70 pages. So far, so good. Coyle writes in the Outside-magazine-feature-story style -- lots of detailed observation and a touch of humor.
You can read a chapter over at the LAW web page.
While I'm writing about cycling books, I'll put in a plug for my favorite cycling book, "The Rider" by Tim Krabbe. posted by Michael | 8:15 PM
