American Pro : The True Story of Bike Racing in America, Paperback / softback Book

American Pro : The True Story of Bike Racing in America Paperback / softback


American cycling has a long tradition of riding and racing on a shoestring and a prayer.

Jamie Smith explores the domestic side of the world's biggest amateur sport in American Pro: The True Story of Bike Racing in America.

American Pro rips away the thin veneer of professionalism among domestic racing teams to lay bare the heart and soul of a struggling sport.

Smith traces the arc of one team's racing career to discover colorful personalities, scrappy racing action, humor and heartbreak.

American Pro shows what the sport demands: the scramble for contracts, the dynamics of team chemistry, the unending travel, the Herculean struggle to realize the dream-all for the love of bike racing.

With sharp humor and insight, Smith uncovers what's wrong-and what's right-with America's broken bike racing system.

American Pro will transform how you think of domestic pro racing through a five-season expose of the sport we love.
