The Descent

'I have success, money, women. I've been lionised by the public and the media. The world is at my feet. I've spread my wings and here I am, soaring above everything and everyone. But in reality, the descent has already begun.'

From doping to redemption, this is the controversial, internationally bestselling tell-all memoir from the golden boy of Dutch cycling, Thomas Dekker.

Thomas Dekker was set to become one of pro cycling’s superstars. He represented the Netherlands at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens and won the Tirreno–Adriatico in 2006, followed by the Tour de Romandie in 2007. But before long, he found himself buckling under the pressure to perform and sucked in by the lure of hedonistic highs. Now, after years of leading a double life, Dekker exposes the truth.

In The Descent, Dekker tells his shocking story of hotel room blood bags, shady rendezvous with dealers, partying with prostitutes at the Tour de France and the consequences of prolific EPO use. This is Dekker’s journey from youthful idealism to a sordid path of excess and doping that lays bare pro-cycling’s darkest secrets like never before. It is the story from a man who has nothing left to lose.
