American Pro

The True Story of Bike Racing in America


American cycling has a long tradition of riding and racing on a shoestring and a prayer. 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, 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 good humor, compelling storytelling, and scrappy racing commentary, Smith explores the domestic side of the world's biggest amateur sport and 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 exposť of the sport we love.
