Lance Armstrong won seven Tour de France races. Every year the officials tried to hang Armstrong from the highest yard arm. All failed and Armstrong passed.
Tyler Hamilton failed several drug tests and was at odds with Armstrong. Hamilton appears to be a spiteful person who is out to get revenge because he is a loser.
Enter the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which was out to get Armstrong. It had no evidence on Armstrong but did on Hamilton. Turning a blind eye to the test results from the Tour de France records, it went after Hamilton because he had failed drug tests and was a partner with Armstrong on the U.S. Postal Team. It looks like Hamilton caved and agreed to “spill his guts” to the anti-doping agency.
It appears the anti-doping agency convicted him on hearsay alone.
Hamilton is already publishing a book that will make him millions. Revenge is sweet.
