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-
