It was the lack of mentioning she's actually won the tour a couple of times that struck me.  If I thought they could have at least acknowledged that, I'd bet NC would be a tad pissed off about it.  I'm about 3/4 through her book just now, and really enjoying it.   Her wins came in spite of british cycling which is in contrast to the situation now.

Her book is brilliant. More information about bike racing and tactics in there than all the other cycling books I've ever read! BC (Shane Sutton especially) were enormously obstructive and were no help at all with the whole Halfords mess. To be fair, the article is about hosting events (golf and TdF) - the people associated part is very small. You're right though - I imagine she would be peed off...
