Full Bio


Tyler Hamilton was once one of the world’s top-ranked cyclists. He started his career with the U.S. Postal Service team in the 1990s and quickly rose to become Lance Armstrong’s most trusted lieutenant and a member of his inner circle. For the first three of Armstrong’s record seven Tour de France victories, Hamilton was by Armstrong’s side, clearing his way. Denying the use of performance-enhancing drugs for years, Hamilton was subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury and for the first time, broke the code of silence that had protected the sport’s hard truth for so long. In 2012, Hamilton released his memoir, The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France: Doping, Cover-ups, and Winning at All Costs, a riveting journey into the heart of a never before seen world and the stark choices that went along with his decision to compete at a world-class level. The book became an instant New York Times bestseller and was the recipient of the prestigious William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award. Today, he lives in Missoula, Montana enjoying a slower-paced life after pro racing. He enjoys hiking, skiing, yoga, bikepacking, and spending time with his girlfriend and her two boys.
