Episode 54 // Tyler Hamilton with Pas Normal Studios

The connection to Tyler was made in a way that we love most about our local and extended cycling community; a friend of a friend reached out with the idea, and we embraced the opportunity. The stories that Tyler is a large part of have undeniably impacted the image of bike racing and cycling culture - the rise and fall of great American athletes. Wherever you, as our listener, fall in opinion on the hot-button issues of doping in the Postal Service era and beyond, we hope you enjoy this episode where we get a glimpse into the real emotion and experience of one human. What’s it like to fall from grace and how does it change the things one values? What is Tyler up to now? Have a listen and find out. *Apologies for some digital hash on Barb's mic!* **Thanks Dylan W. for helping out with some new production techniques!
