The Agony and the Ecstasy: Stephen Roche's World of Cycling by Stephen Roche
Great book about the life of professional bike racers including courtship, family life, etc. Also out of print but not as hard to find as Wheels on Ice. I used to have a signed first edition but my ex- sold it during our separation.
