Summary
In 2012, veteran cyclist Michael Barry announced his retirement from the sport after a celebrated 14 year career. Weeks later he testified against his former team mate Lance Armstrong, as part of the USADA investigation. Barry explores the dreams and passion of a young, idealistic cycling fan from Toronto - what it was then like to ride as a teammate alongside such giants of the sport as Lance Armstrong, Mark Cavendish, Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome, and how those dreams were tainted early on in his career by a sport in crisis. But it's also the story of his 11 years riding clean, before and after his time in the notorious American Postal Team
