Summary:
Bill Strickland believed he was cursed. No matter how secure his life outwardly seemed, the happiness he had attained with his wife and daughter hung by a thread--threatened by the monster Bill lived in constant fear of, a demon inside him that had been created by horrific childhood abuse. A lifelong but decidedly average bicyclist, Bill was challenged by his daughter to score ten points in a series of weekly races dominated by pro racers, national champions, and legends of the sport. He hoped that if he could achieve this impossible feat, he might similarly triumph over the indestructible demon that haunted his life. Weaving together the story of the races and Bill's struggle to overcome a legacy of abuse, this is an insider's look at the world of bicycling and the healing power of sports.--From publisher description.
