60, Very Sad, Minutes

Last night Brent and I watched the 60 Minutes interview with Tyler Hamilton, gold-metal cyclist and former teammate of Lance Armstrong. He recently admitted in front of a grand jury to doping while cycling in the Tour de France, and the Athens olympics. He also talked openly, though hesitantly, about Armstrongs own doping habits. It’s one of the very saddest, and most conflicted, interviews I’ve ever seen. I wonder if cycling will ever fully recover from the seemingly continuos scandal and doubt of the doping controversy.

You can find the 2-part series on 60 Minutes. Part one here; part two here.

    Kyle and I just this past week finished reading “Positively False” by Floyd Landis, teammate to Lance Armstrong and 2006 winner of the Tour de France, until he was stripped of the title for a positive drug test. Have not seen the 60 Minutes episode yet, but we are interested. It is a well written book but leaves me wondering who is telling the truth anymore within the world of cycling.
