New York Times’ Juliet Macur to Pen Book on Lance Armstrong

Juliet Macur, the sports reporter for The New York Times who has been on top of all things Lance Armstrong, is now going long on the cyclist. According to The New York Post, Macur signed a book deal with HarperCollins, rumored to be in the six figures. The book on Armstrong is titled Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong.

Cycle of Lies will prove definitively that his [Armstrong] extraordinary career had nothing to do with the bike,” David Hirshey, HarperCollins’ executive editor, told the Post.

Macur’s book is expected to hit shelves next summer. Maybe Armstrong will sign a copy!
