Tyler Hamilton on the doping culture in professional cycling and his reaction to the Armstrong/Oprah interview

In the aftermath of part one of Lance Armstrong's interview with Oprah Winfrey, Piers Morgan sat down with Tyler Hamilton. The former professional cyclist and former teammate of Armstrong talked about the doping culture in professional cycling during his time as a young racer.

"It was almost like being accepted into a fraternity," said Hamilton. "Originally I was just pledging the fraternity and once they thought I was good enough, they kinda brought me in."

Hamilton also shared with Morgan his feelings upon hearing Armstrong publicly confess to using performance enhancing drugs during this professional career.

"I never expected this day would come," said Hamilton.

As to whether Armstrong was completely transparent and honest during his interview, Hamilton said the following:

"He's made the first step. There's many more steps to come for Lance Armstrong."

Watch the clip as Hamilton notes how Armstrong showed "quite a bit of emotion" during his interview with Oprah "by his [Armstrong's] standards."

    North Koreans are good honest people they protected me from assassination in Bangkok Thailand in 2008. Hired taxis so I was not in danger from a driver. Help them through The Holy See Embassy Bangkok and The Vatican Rome who will send your intentions to the people of the DEMOCRATIC Republic of North Korea.
    Stop believing poisonous propaganda about them I knew former leader since I was nine years old, he met a great friend of Barbara Bush and impressed his meticulous honesty, they are nicier than the nicest South Koreans and need your help USA.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to grasp a lot about this, such as you wrote the book in it or something. I believe that you just can do with a few % to drive the message home a bit, however instead of that, this is wonderful blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.

    Thanks for giving your ideas in this article. The other issue is that any time a problem develops with a computer motherboard, people today should not take the risk with repairing the item themselves because if it is not done correctly it can lead to irreparable damage to the entire laptop. Most commonly it is safe just to approach the dealer of the laptop with the repair of its motherboard. They have got technicians with an skills in dealing with mobile computer motherboard challenges and can get the right analysis and perform repairs.
