    Wall Street Journal reporters Albergotti and?O’Connell reveal the broader story of how?Lance Armstrong and his backers used?money, power and cutting-edge science?to conquer (or should that be fiddle?) the?Tour de France. Wheelmen reveals what?the authors describe as the greatest?conspiracy in the history of sports, whereby?businessman Thom Weisel, owner of the?US Postal Service Pro Cycling Team (USPS),?staged a brazen power-play and ousted?USA Cycling’s leadership, gaining control of?the sport in the United States and ensuring?that his headline rider’s doping offences?were covered up. It’s a riveting look at what?happens when athletic genius breaks loose?from the strictures of morality.??
