After three years in retirement following his record-setting
7th Tour de France win -- which he accomplished after
successfully battling the testicular cancer that almost
killed him -- Lance Armstrong announced to the world on
September 24, 2008 at the Clinton Global Initiative in New
York City, that he would return to professional cycling to
help promote a Global Cancer Campaign. Comeback 2.0: Up
Close and Personal is Lance Armstrong's first-person
photo-journal of his 2009 comeback season with the goal to
take the LIVESTRONG message around the world. Heavily
illustrated with color photos and text, Lance will take
readers on a thrilling ride through his dramatic comeback
year. Comeback 2.0 includes an introduction by Lance that
frames his decision to return to competitive cycling
followed by journal-like entries written through the course
of his comeback season beginning with the Tour Down Under,
followed by the Tour of California, his spectacular crash in
the first stage of the Vuelta a Castilla y Leon race in
Spain that resulted in a broken collar bone, the Giro
d'Italia, culminating in the Tour de France. The journal
entries will accompany spectacular four-color photos, that
offer breathtaking views of the race stages as well as
intimate, behind-the-scenes shots. Renowned sports
photographer and photojournalist Elizabeth Kreutz has been
granted unparalleled access to Lance's day-to-day world in
this, his most triumphant season.
