Tyler Hamilton – 2 year ban upheld

The CAS has upheld Tyler Hamilton’s two year ban. This basically means he will be out of competition until September 2006. Hamilton was caught Blood doping at the 2004 Vuelta. After the ruling he said:

“Based on my devastating personal experience over the last year and a half, I am committed to fighting for reform within the anti-doping movement,” Hamilton said. “I do support the anti-doping mission and (the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency), however the current system has failed an innocent athlete and needs to change.”

Terry Madden, CEO of USADA, said in a press release dispatched on Saturday:

“It is sad that Mr. Hamilton resorted to conspiracy theories rather than just accept the consequences of his doping.”
