Thomas Dekker was set to become one of pro cycling's superstars. He represented the Netherlands at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens and won the Tirreno-Adriatico in 2006, followed by the Tour de Romandie in 2007. But before long, he found himself buckling under the pressure to perform and sucked in by the lure of hedonistic highs. Now, after years of leading a double life, Dekker exposes the truth. In 'The Descent', Dekker tells his shocking story of hotel room blood bags, shady rendezvous with dealers, partying with prostitutes at the Tour de France and the consequences of prolific EPO use.
