Dear Tyler Hamilton ... The newest reports say that he gets to keep his Olympic gold because the second test couldn't really be done (the sample deteriorated). The Spanish tests, though, came back positive so there's still suspicion.
I have a friend who is a big Lance Armstrong fan - he was an early wearer of the Live Strong bracelet and still wears it all the time. Me? I admire Lance but Tyler's performance last year in the Tour just amazed me. Tyler broke his collarbone the first day of the Tour, continued to compete, won a stage and ended up fourth overall. As good as Lance is, he hasn't competed like that.
Which is why I really hope that Tyler is cleared conclusively.
