The Secret Race by Tyler Hamilton and Daniel Coyle wins the "Bookie" Prize

The Secret Race by Tyler Hamilton and Daniel Coyle wins the "Bookie" Prize

Former US Olympic gold medallist and seven-time Tour de France rider, Tyler Hamilton, and acclaimed writer Daniel Coyle have scooped this year’s William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award for The Secret Race, a groundbreaking exposé about the culture of doping in professional cycling.

Claiming the greatest honour in sports-writing, The Secret Race created news headlines earlier this year, and has been widely described as the most damning indictment yet of Tour winners, such as Tyler’s former teammate Lance Armstrong. Announced by John Inverdale at a lunchtime ceremony at Waterstones Piccadilly, Europe’s largest bookstore, The Secret Race was hailed by judges as “a landmark publication”.

Tyler Hamilton was once one of the world’s most-liked and top-ranked cyclists, renowned among his peers for his uncanny endurance and epic tolerance for pain. A teammate of Lance Armstrong on the US Postal Service cycling team during the 1999, 2000 and 2001 Tour de France competitions, Hamilton appeared at the 2000 and 2004 Olympic Games, winning a gold medal at the latter. Just weeks after claiming gold, he was found guilty of doping and was exiled from the sport.
