Count another teammate of Lance Armstrong’s to come out and talk about doping. Tyler sits down with Scott Pelley to talk about what most of us pretty much know already. Lance Armstrong doped during his seven Tour wins.
Tyler Hamilton was a close teammate of Lance Armstrong on the Postal Service team before Floyd Landis. Hamilton had a very shaky path since he was busted for doping during the 2004 Olympics and the 2004 Tour of Spain. Hamilton was cleared of the Olympic charge on a technicality of a ruined B sample, while he was found guilty of doping for the Tour of Spain.
Hamilton famously defended his doping case by presenting evidence that included a theory of a vanishing twin to help explain why he was caught for blood doping.
The Crostis descent is an extra challenge in the Giro this year. The steep gravelly descent with tight turns has been a concern after the tragic death of Wouter Weylandts. Calls for rider safety were heard by the Giro organizers RCS who likes to push the boundaries with their course to provide excitement. Until now, most of the excitement dealt with strade bianche and super steep climbs such as the Zoncolon. Alberto Contador said he was scared of the Crostis descent after a recent recon trip.
Giro organizers added some safety measure such as safety nets, and mattresses to some of the sketchier areas of the decent. The video below obtained by Tuttobici shows the new updates. The descent still looks sketchy and I find it hard to believe that the Giro was going to let the stage run without safety barriers on some of those turns.
So your bike is way too awesome to use just any old lock. Plus theives have been carrying around bolt cutters for years. They don’t carry ladders with them. Try this new elevator bike lock. wrap the device around a street pole, place your bike on it and up it goes.
Your bike is conveniently out of the way mocking potential bike thieves like a tasty monkey sitting in a tree evading a lion.
Mark Zuckerberg was a great muse for the movie the Social Network. The socially awkward nerd who built an empire based on social connections. Stripped down to it’s core Mark Zuckerberg is an anti-hero. The movie deals with Zuck stealing the idea and making it his own. But Mark Zuckerberg’s character is nothing compared to the multi-layered complex character of Lance Armstrong. There is a movie to be made.
