- Tyler Hamilton: The Secret race
Did someone mention womens racing?

“Do you think cycling is being picked on?Posted 4 years ago
Stephen Roche: Yes, it’s a very easy target. It is being picked on. Could you imagine a similar scandal erupting in football. If the stadiums were all empty, an awful lot more money is lost and it hurts a lot more people, whereas if cycling goes down it doesn’t matter, people lose their jobs buts it’s no big deal. If football was hit or tennis was hit it would be a major bad coup for anyone involved in it. ”velocipedeMember
I can’t stop reading all these cycling books – Millar, Hamilton, Kelly, etc – now on Michael Hutchinson’s book about his hour record attempt – the drugs stuff is a sideline, I’m hooked on the insight it gives into the lifestyle these guys have to lead to be successful (drugs or no drugs) – makes your own mundane life seem a bit “easy”….!!Posted 4 years agopondoMember
I feel zero sympathy for Tyler though. The book seems geared at redemption of sorts.
I’m about three quarters of the way through, and maybe it changes towards the end, but it feels more like “if you’re wondering how it happens, this is it”, rather than a redemptive, “it’s not my fault” kind of gig.

I love this book, more people should read it. 🙂Posted 4 years agoLosidanMember
I was absorbed by the Hamilton book. I took it to read on the train for one of my trips down for work and for once was glad of a delay to keep reading.
I even ended up chatting to a chap on the way down as he clocked the book and we started chatting cycling.
Glad you said that about Cav. I always have this dread that in person they are complete aholes but nice when they are a decent sort too. Same with Ed Clancy when I asked if he minded a pic with him after a race the other year.Posted 4 years ago
