I've been reading on the other cycling websites- sad person that I am- that they've uncovered Tyler Hamilton's 2003 doping diary from the Fuentes clinic. There was just about everthing listed - blood, steroids the lot. Absolutely unbelievable. I mean,all that stuff and he still looked like a real weed!
But why oh why couldn't they uncover his 2004 diary? And then the Olympic committee could finally restore the 2004 Time Trial medal to its rightful owner -Viatcheslav Ekimov.This must be one of the greatest injustices in cycling history. I'm surprised he didn't make a bigger fuss about it at the time. But I guess he's just the strong, silent type. What a cyclist..what a hero..what a mullet.
But hang on,maybe he's planning to burst out of retirement again in 2008 to win back the medal fair and square in Beijing!
