Own a piece of Tyler

This one fucking kills me.

Tyler Hamilton’s USPS 98-99 Season Helmet
Up for auction is Tyler’s Team Issue Giro Boreas Helmet. At one time this was a prized piece in my cycling memorabilia collection. I was proud and happy to display it in the shop and then later in my office. I made a donation to the MS society back in early 99-or 2000 through Tyler and Haven and I “bought it” I asked if he would autograph it for me and he did……. As Tyler’s career continued and the Palamares grew larger and more accomplished it stood as a symbol of what hard work and determination can build. He was an inspiration to me.

It is for this very reason that I can no longer even look at it.

What once stood for what is possible with hard work and sacrifice- now stands for, and is a constant reminder of, what is wrong with the sport I love.

I believed in Tyler, I believed in Landis, I believed in Vino and the Lion……

I now believe that there is no room for false heroes, liars, cheaters and scum bags in MY life. Dopers Suck! Straight up-

Check it: cgi.ebay.com

As of this moment, the bid is at US $6.66.

Coincidence? I think not.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. What a dumbass! I’m surprised he hasn’t contacted the folks at the MS society and ask for his money back. Fuck, if he hates his “Fred” memorabilia that much just burn the shit and get over it.
