A lot of people have been asking me what I think about Tyler Hamilton’s confession. In 2007, I wrote a Bicycling magazine feature about Tyler, his supporters and why I don’t believe. (You can read the story here.)
Some friends over at the Last Word on Nothing blog invited me to write about Tyler’s confession. Here’s what I wrote: Lies and the Lying Bicyclist Who Tells Them.
I believe in forgiveness, but it takes more than the wave of a hand. I hope that Tyler finds a way to atone for his betrayals and revive the person that he once was. He has a long road ahead.

What is the point of this story? All it seems to say is that Tyler lied in the past. He did; he said as much on 60 Minutes. What if he is telling the truth now?
This story just echoes Fabiani’s spin, attacking the character and alleged motivations of people who come out against Lance: liar, liar, liar, greed, alleged book deal etc. As a journalist, shouldn’t you get beyond the name calling and write about whether the allegations are actually true?
