The Death of Marco Pantani

Extract from the Epilogue of Matt Rendell's book:

Marco had been dying a long time. The police investigation into his destruction addressed only the final seven weeks of his life. Much was unknown about him, even to insiders. He had kept his different groups of associates - his team-mates and sponsors; his family and manager; his hunting partners; the various groups of nightclub friends in Cesenatico, Rimini and Modena; those who had doped him; those who had drugged him, and those who had procured him women - in separate orbits, and made sure that none saw more of him than he chose to reveal.
