A Dog in a Hat
Chipps says,"If you want an honest, well-written insight into what it's like to move to Europe and try to make it as a pro racer, then you need to read Joe Parkin's story of a US rider who crosses the Atlantic and arrives in Belgium. It's funny, touching, brave and honest in its look at this complicated world and of the European pro-cycling scene, which includes drugs, pay-offs, betrayal and agony."
