Tyler Hamilton joined Floyd Landis on the list of cyclists who once worked for Lance Armstrong but now say the seven-time Tour de France winner used performance-enhancing drugs.
In an interview with “60 Minutes,” Hamilton admitted that he doped and said Armstrong did, as well — using the blood booster EPO in the 1999 Tour and before the race in 2000 and 2001. Armstrong’s string of seven straight wins lasted from 1999-2005.
“I saw (EPO) in his refrigerator. ... I saw him inject it more than one time, like we all did. Like I did, many, many times,” Hamilton said in the “60 Minutes” interview that was aired Thursday on the “CBS Evening News.”
Armstrong immediately refuted the Hamilton interview, launching a website that denied the claims.
He also tweeted: “20+ year career. 500 drug controls worldwide, in and out of competition. Never a failed test. I rest my case.”
But the Hamilton interview keeps the news of Armstrong and his alleged doping program in the headlines.
