It's been a tough couple of years for famed Marblehead cyclist Tyler Hamilton.
Earlier this month, he won at the Athens Olympics in 2004 after the IOC determined he had tested positive for a blood transfusion.
Last year, Hamilton made headlines when he and admitted to using performance enhancing substances and said he witnessed Lance Armstrong injecting EPO, a banned substance that increases a rider's red blood cell count, during the 1999 Tour de France, which Armstrong won.
The backlash from that controversial interview and at an appearance at in November, Hamilton declined to comment on that aspect of his career.
Late Thursday night, Armstrong issued a statement announcing that he would give up the fight against longstanding doping charges and the USADA immediately stripped him of his seven Tour de France titles and banned him for life from the sport of cycling, according to ESPN.
So, we have to ask - do you think this latest revelation means that Hamilton was telling the truth about Armstrong's indiscretions during his 60 Minutes interview? Does this change the way you look at Hamilton's admission?
Or do you think Armstrong's announcement simply means that he's tired of fighting the charges and he wants to get on with his life.
