Who's clever and knows about this stuff? Read thisblogentry.

I'm especially interested in this part

Tyler’s lawyer sent a letter regarding his situation with a letter from USADA attached stating that they would in essence – “be in touch” if an investigation was going to be considered related to OP. That was in September 2006. Tyler has heard nothing since. In addition, Tyler’s lawyer noted, that per the rules – that even if the OP allegations were true (which they are not) they pre-date a “first offense” suspension Tyler has already served. The authorities cannot go back in time and charge a new “first offence” predating that suspension or charge a second offence that predates a first offence already served. Instead of dismissing this issue, USADA has ignored it, allowing it to continue to hamper Tyler’s career and ability to make a living like a storm that won’t blow out to sea. In sum, there is no “open investigation” against Tyler.

Is that true?

Also, read TH's Tinkoff entry - It's fairly amusing.
Fckin' Quintana … that creep can roll, man.
