    Alleged Contents of Tyler Hamilton's Suitcase of Courage

    More than just toothpaste in there that is banned...

    Extensive doping alleged for Hamilton

    One day after the initial report by Danish Politiken, Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws has published details of the alleged "doping diary" of Tyler Hamilton, found among the papers of Spanish doctor Eufemiano Fuentes.

    According to the Belgian media, Hamilton's doping practices in 2003, when he won both Liège-Bastogne-Liège and the Tour de Romandie as well as a stage in the Tour de France despite a collarbone fracture, were extensive and cost him a total of 43,040 Euros.

    The paper cites information according to which the then-CSC rider used EPO 30 times between December 2002 and February 2003, as well as anabolic steroids. In the beginning of March 2003, Hamilton allegedly used a pregnancy hormone to cover up the traces of the cure. Two blood transfusions are reported to have been administered to his body two days prior to Paris-Nice, where Hamilton won the mountains jersey.

    In April, the American is thought to have used growth hormone and insulin to promote muscle growth. After the Tour de Romandie, the paper claims to have evidence that he transfused three bags of blood (a total of 1.35 litres), returned to normal blood levels with the help of EPO, and re-injected two bags of blood six days before the start of the Dauphiné Libéré.

    Another growth hormone cure came after the race according to the media, as well as several blood transfusions in the count down to the Tour de France. The information gathered even points at a blood transfusion on the day of the medical control at the start of the Grand Tour, and twice during the race.

    No doubt all that was planted as part of the big conspiracy.

    Basso goes public August 29th in Rome -he's equally screwed, CSC is already warned him he has to prove his innocence or he's fired.

    Speaking of Ivan:

    For the first time in the Spanish doping scandal, Team CSC manager Bjarne Riis has declared that he is not sure about Ivan Basso being able to continue his career within Team CSC. "I have difficulties seeing a future for Basso with CSC unless he is totally cleared," Riis told Danish Politiken on Monday. "If Basso was in contact with the doctor [Fuentes - ed.], he lied to us, and betrayed the team and the values we hold dear - then his career with CSC would be over."

    Moreover, the 1996 Tour de France winner Riis saw his image affected by the recent revelations about Basso. "I feel really bad about this case. Basso is the worst that could happen to me - it has ruined my image. I need to fix that and right now it's a tough job," he declared.
    Yea because Bjarne was squeeky clean before Basso.

    Regardless of Hamilton's guilt, how did this information become public?

    Can Tyler get in any more trouble? He is already serving his 2 year ban, and this is just old information that strengthens the UCI's ban on Tyler. So even with this "diary" he will still be able to race at the end of sept. Or am I missing something?

    All of those drugs were just there to help him cope over the loss of his vanishing twin. They were very close, those two.

    I've read that if these allegations are proven in any sense Tyler could be banned for life. How true this is, I can't tell you. But it doesn't sound good for him.

    Insulin promotes muscle growth? I should be ripped like a bodybuilder with the almost obscene amount of insulin I MUST take.

    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    They probably meant IGF-1, not insulin like a diabetic would take.

    I'm not sure what "sacasism" is, but insulin can be used as a recovery aid. Heck, everyone's body uses insulin as a recovery aid. It basically pulls glucose out of the blood and into the cells to restore glycogen. Doing this very rapidly would become quite important in a stage race. A little dangerous, though, since exogenous insulin is very easily detected with a cheap lab test (c-peptide).

    IGF-1 would be another possibility, though.

    He's just shocked that he spent that much on the goods. Probably wondering where his frequent buyer discount went.

    If half of this Spanish scandal is true, it points to a profoundly entrenched culture of doping in pro cycling at the highest levels that's common knowledge among elite competitors. Which is quite disturbing. Does this threaten pro cycling as we know it? Sure. Will pro cycling ever be completely undone by this mess? Not a chance.

    I don't think you have to worry about Le Tour, Vuelta or the Giro. They'll figure out a way to muddle through. And millions of us will still follow the sport. And sponsors will still ante up the $10-$30 million a year to sponsor a top UCI team - essentially because it's very cheap advertising for the right companies. Will we have Phonak, Discovery and AG2R in a couple of years? Maybe not. Instead we may have Apple Computer, Virgin Airlines and one or two Euro companies none of us Yanks has ever heard of. But the sponsors will come.

    In some countries, if the police raid a doctor's office and "seize" a diary, they bring charges in court. Allow the accused person's lawyers to examine the evidence. And present their own evidence.

    But, we live on "Planet Cycling". The police raid a doctor's office. No charges are filed. No evidence is presented in court. Instead, the "National Inquirer" and its relatives around the world publish what they claim are "genuine" excerpts from the diary.

    Would an intelligent person read such crap? Or, believe such crap? But, wait...why are we talking about "intelligent"? On "Planet Cycling" no intelligence is necessary. If you read it, it is true.

    I read that two of the posters in this thread had a relationship, and one of them gave birth to a three-headed baby. It must be true. It is on the internet.

    Sponsors are getting hard to come by due to the recent scandals. Phonak was already scheduled to pull out, but iShares dropped the team after the Flandis affair.
    T-mobile is 'contemplating' its role in cycling.
    CSC has threatened to leave the sport if more riders are implicated in OP.
    Liberty-Seguros is gone.
    US TDF ratings are at 50%.
    There really is no doubt doping scandals are killing cycling.
