Armstrong Confronts Tyler Hamilton in Aspen

After recently accusing Lance Armstrong of alleged doping, Olympic gold medalist Tyler Hamilton has leveled a new accusation against his former teammate—confronting him in an Aspen, Colo., restaurant this past weekend.

Outside magazine reports that Hamilton was in Aspen working on an Outside cycling event when he left his table at the French restaurant Cache Cache and was intercepted by Armstrong, who owns a home in the area. The two had not spoken since Hamilton implicated Armstrong in doping scandals on “60 Minutes” last month.

Armstrong reportedly blocked Hamilton’s return from the bathroom and berated the cyclist. “He wanted to get into it,” Hamilton told Outside. “I was like, ‘Let’s step outside and talk away from the crowd,’ but he wouldn’t.”

Armstrong denies Hamilton’s confrontational version of events and describes the encounter as merely “awkward” and “uneventful.” Jodi Larner, Cache Cache’s owner and a friend of Armstrong, told Hamilton he could finish his meal but was no longer welcome at the restaurant. Hamilton reports being shaken by the incident.

Lance approached his former teammate in a restaurant for their first meeting since Hamilton’s “60 Minutes” appearance.

    Here we go again let’s tear Lance’s house down. Let’s face it Lance Armstrong must be one of the most tested cyclist’s to ride the Tour de France yet at no point has he been proven to have doped.
    No amount of finger pointing or speculation can change that. Quite frankly I could care less if has or not, hell I’m not going to give up cycling if has doped and this hogwash that cheating brings cycling into disrepute is daft to say the least cycling is well and will always be well, it’s the officials that need to catch the culprits and kick there asses, if they don’t have adequate tests tough luck find them and use them. It sounds like sour grapes on the part of Hamilton
