Summary

On the Road to Success with the Mastermind Behind Eight Tour de France Victories
Johan Bruyneel knows what it takes to win. In 1998, this calculating Belgian and former professional cyclist looked Lance Armstrong in the eye and said, "Look, if were going to ride the Tour, we might as well win." In that powerful phrase, a dynasty was born.
We Might As Well Win takes listeners behind the scenes and inside the team car, as Bruyneel reveals the planning, training, strategy, and tactics that led to a record seven Tour de France victories with Armstrong and an eighth with Alberto Contador.
Through thrilling stories of his own racing career and those of the cyclists he has guided during his extraordinary career, Bruyneel reveals the keys to victory both in cycling and in life.

Fiction & Fantasy

Truth is out now , hope they decide to change the title to We knew we would win . With hindsight we all regret having bought this audible book and even half believing what was written, then again we probably all thought we were inspired by Lance's book

Pure FICTION , would like a credit back for being duped

A work of fiction

Given recent revelations around Johans alleged involvment in Lance Armstrong's doping there is a good chance a lot of important information may be lacking from this book !

Great read, mediocre narration.

As a long-time cyclist, I am predisposed to enjoy this book. It is a very interesting look into what drives Bruyneel and how he has managed his teams over the past 10 years. Cyclists and non-cyclists will enjoy the view from inside the team car.

One note: The narrator has a great voice and is easy to listen to. However, his pronunciation was terrible, and I cringed when he mangled nearly every non-American proper name (like Liege, Alpe d'Huez, etc.). I would have expected that he spend some time learning the proper pronunciation of cyclist names, city names, etc.

Garbage

Not what I was expecting. The stories about strategy in cycling were kind of interesting but the fact that they totally ignored the doping aspect of their success makes the reader feel cheated. Don't waste your time with this one.
