Hamilton out, Cipollini In????


I was e-mailed an entry list about noon today, with the comment "there are a few changes forthcoming".

About 3 PM I heard some people talking that the UCI had notified the event last night that it was re-opening the Operation Puerto investigation. Since ATOC has a policy of barring anybody who has an open investigation going on, that wasn't good news for a few people.

So this evening, around 7 PM I got a revised entry list, on which Oscar Sevilla and Tyler Hamiltion from Rock racing were out, and MARIO CIPOLLINI was in.

WTF? A 40-year-old rider who has been retired for three years?
