The book by Daniel de Vise chronicles the life of one of America's greatest athletes, from his roots in Nevada and California to the heights of global fame, to a falling out with his own family and a calamitous confrontation with Lance Armstrong over allegations the latter was doping.

"With the kind of narrative drive that propels books like Moneyball, and a fierce attention to detail, Daniel de Visé reveals the dramatic, ultra-competitive inner world of a sport rarely glimpsed up close, and builds a compelling case for LeMond as its great American hero," the publisher said. 

The 432-page book is being published by Atlantic Monthly Press. It will retail for $27. 

De Vise will be making appearances at bike shops and book stores around the U.S. starting in June. The full schedule is on his website
