New Doping Allegations Against Lance Armstrong

Tyler Hamilton, former teammate of Lance Armstrong, and a cooperator in the Government investigation into Armstrong's use of steroids, tells "60 Minutes" tonight that Lance Armstrong injected steroids many times. He said they all did. Lance Armstrong's lawyer replies:

Every cyclist who appeared on 60 Minutes has in the past sworn that they never doped. Now, their stories have suddenly changed out of desire for money and the need for attention. Just as eager for money and attention, 60 Minutes has embraced these falsehoods uncritically and enthusiastically. But greed and a hunger for publicity cannot change the facts: Lance Armstrong is the most tested athlete in the history of sports: He has passed nearly 500 tests over twenty years of competition. The time has long passed for this nonsensical investigation to stop, and for the enormous wasted resources to be re-directed to investigations that might actually protect Americans from wrongdoing.

Hamilton says Armstrong took the blood-booster EPO. He reportedly is writing a book. For more information from Lance's point of view, visit Facts for Lance.
