Former cyclist speaks at Carroll College
Tonight former professional cyclist Tyler Hamilton spoke at the Carroll College P.E. Center in front of a pack house.
Hamilton, was a former U.S. Postal teammate of Lance Armstrong. Hamilton's book "The Secret Race" uncovered the dark side of cycling and exposed himself and others including 7-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong for their use of performance enhancing drugs. Hamilton said finally telling the truth has been a the best decision he's ever made.
Hamilton says, “Doing the right thing now, finally, I've told the truth, I've come forward opened up, there's not one truth that's not been uncovered, it feels great, feels great. I was planning for a long time to go to the grave with all these secrets, finally decided to tell the truth.”
A very compelling story about the darker side of professional cycling.
