Can’t wait! The worlds most inarticulate man writing a book. How many times can he get the word phuck in a sentence? :cool:


I asked Hodder & Stoughton about this again and they say Sutton has no deal with them for a book. How the (bleep!) it got onto Amazon then is a good question.
It was due to land last May but got cancelled because of the bullying scandal.

Only 1/3 through Freeman's book so far but, for anyone in the clinic I would recommend it. Fascinating stuff so far. Decided to read it through rather than skip to find any controversy, but really opens the the lid of the role of a team doctors day-to-day role within a cycling team.

Not really talking about his believability, it's interesting simply because it covers basically everything the clinic discusses as a grey area in fine detail. The clinic is not particular believable either lol!

The Clinic has been right on a lot. But that would mean your boys are dopers and you wouldn't want to admit to that. :D

All I can say is wow. That got through an editorial process? Dan Brown books are better written than that...

I really enjoyed it. Obviously it's aimed at the amateur rider and dumbed down, but it's a window into a team doctors role in a cycling team nonetheless.

luckily i have a fried doing an online review....'as it happens' so to speak

2KG sh*ts :D

what a turbo is

what VO2 max is

he weighs riders (doesn't tell SDB - secret squirrel)

no mention of tramadol

and perhaps if you've read the whole thing, how did SKY miss the fact that if Froome just lost weight he would be better than mercxk???

Are you saying i'm not allowed to enjoy a book? The clinic now thinks they are the judge of who can and can't enjoy something. You guys have serious issues of balance.
