I never understood why Tinkoff dropped him. He did his time for blood doping and they knew that up front....then they fired him.... I don't like the cheating but if you cheat and do the time then you've paid your due....so go back to work if you can find a team.

Hey Dr., I think it had to do with Tylers name being found linked to puerto.

It would appear, judging by Mr. Ball's interview with Velonews, that everyone riding for Rock Racing has this "day to day" contract. So, why not bring Tyler on board if you can terminate his contract at will?

You're probably right. But that operation was just the means by which he committed his original offense when he got busted. They just didn't want the bad press I guess....but by hiring him in the first place they were willing to take on a fair bit of bad press. Ah well....he's way past his prime anyway so this is kind of a 'no news' sort of story.

No, there was evidence of a possible second violation. That's why they let him go.

Actually its the same for me, but Im very confused with pros nowdays. I mean big part of my heros has been caught or got linked to doping.

Perhaps I can use this as leverage to stop the missus purchasing their vastly overpriced jeans

What a comic book...

Hero is just a man, working hard to fulfill his obligations. Hero cheats to keep going. Gets caught by police. Public burning. Hero wallows for years in depression. Hero trys to come back, only to the scorn of the public. People want a hero that is honest and strong enough to be human at times.

Good luck to Tyler. I don't see Rock Racing being any better than Tinkoff for him, but it's a 2nd start. Tyler needs to find a better place to race. I'm not a big fan of Ball.

Great to see Tyler back, I hope to hear more of his moral preachings and watch his olde now-clean ass get dropped.

Let's see a Hamilton without blood doping, we likely won't see much.

He'll never top his "phantom twin" defense. :roll: What a hoot!

Better put your bike budget on hold if you leverage for that :wink:
