  •  Great diary - what is your opinion on (0+ / 0-)

    Tyler Hamilton's situation. I imagine you've followed that closely over the past few years and would be curious about your take on it.

    •  Thanks for asking, Tyler Hamilton (2+ / 0-)

      Did you see him continue in the Tour with a broken collr bone and do well? hamilton is an amazing American talent who also is continuing to fall from grace.  Even after being forced from his bike for several years.  Was he guilty?  I do not know, the circumstances surrounding his case are the stuff of a great mystery novel.

      I want a blanket DNA submission from all cyclists and I want all professionals banned given amnesty on a certain date in the future.  I want a chance for cycling to start over, I want a chance for my American pride to reign supreme in France again.

      Long live Lance, he fought the vampires and won.

      •  I like the idea of the fresh start (0+ / 0-)

        I did see Tyler's amazing will to stay in the Tour after the broken collarbone. I've read about his case and for whatever reason (not based on anything more than instinct) Floyd strikes me as more credible than Tyler.

        Long live Lance, indeed.
