We Might as Well Win takes readers behind the scenes of this amazing nine-year journey through the Alps and the Pyrenees, revealing a radical recipe for winning that readers can adapt from the bike to the boardroom to life. We witness Bruyneel's near-death crash and comeback as a rider. We are privy to the many ways he and Armstrong outsmarted their opponents. We listen in on the team's race radios to hear the secret strategies that inspire greatness from a disparate team. We learn how to make sure "not winning" isn't the same as "losing" as Bruyneel struggles to prove himself -- post-Armstrong -- with new riders, new strategies, and skeptics around every corner.
Whether mounting a difficult climb, or managing a team of thirty riders and forty support staff from a miniature car hurtling along narrow European roads, or looking a future legend in the eye and willing him to believe, Bruyneel is, and has always been, the consummate winner. Readers will relish this inside tour.
JOHAN BRUYNEEL is a former professional cyclist and was the team director from 1999 through 2007 of the U.S. Postal Service Pro Cycling Team, (later the Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team). In that role, he won a record eight Tour de France victories (in nine years' time), making him the winningest team director in history. Born in cycling-mad Belgium in 1964, Bruyneel is fluent in six languages and receives significant worldwide media coverage.
