Tyler Hamilton for Rock Racing during the 2009 Tour of California Prologue in Sacramento.
Hamilton was scheduled to race in this week's Vuelta Castilla y León stage race but pulled out because of bronchitis, according to Rock Racing. Francisco Mancebo took Hamilton's place as team leader for Rock Racing.
Other nonsense that I originally published about Hamilton deleted, although it lives forever in the world of RSS.
IMPORTANT: Please post comments for this article at the new CYCLELICIOUS 2.0 version of this page.
Can't we just accept that a large number of pro athletes use performance enhancing drugs? The prohibition isn't working.
Repeating rumors is neither fair nor ethical. Works the same in cycling and politics. Is it worth potentially damaging a person's reputation to repeat stories with no basis in fact? Hamilton did the crime and served his time. He's starting over with a clean slate. If he gets nailed again, we'll find out from legitimate sources soon enough.
