The Secret Race – Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France is Tyler Hamilton’s account of the secret world of professional cycling. On a fateful night in 2009, Tyler Hamilton and Daniel Coyle met for dinner at a restaurant in Boulder, Colorado. The two had met five years before while Coyle was writing his bestselling book, ”Lance Armstrong: Tour de Force”. But this time, Tyler had something else on his mind. He finally wanted to come clean, about everything: the doping, the lying, his years as Lance Armstrong’s teammate on U.S. Postal, his decade spent running from the truth. ‘I’m sorry,’ he told Coyle. ‘It just feels so good to be able to talk about this. I’ve been quiet for so many years’.
