James Raia's farewell to Tyler Hamilton

This is one of those "I couldn't have said it as well" posts. My old friend James Raia has been writing about cycling for years and years. Based in Sacramento, he works for newspapers and has segued effortlessly into online journalism - in this post for the Examiner.

In almost every other instance when a cyclist has gotten into trouble for doping, I've sighed for the sport more than the rider. Tyler Hamilton is class clear through. James Raia and I are sorry as hell for his troubles.

If you'd like insider letters, sometimes a few a day, during the Tour and in the weeks previous to it, subscribe to James Raia's Examiner posts. Great guy, great savvy information.
