Schleck-the-Elder named in RSN 2013 roster: http://www.velonation.com/News/ID/13235 ... r-now.aspx

Do they know something we don't?

Also, is this actually risky - i.e. when's the deadline for signing up a replacement *if* (big if, I know) the LADA slap a ban on him?

Pretty sure the damage for sponsors has already been done at Radioshack. (Bruyneel, Schleck, everyone else)

Verdict is likely to be - "Poor old Frank, he probably ate something he shouldn't have so we'll let him off". or more likely "we need another meeting in six months to discuss it further before we make a decision".

Either way it's win / win for the people delivering the "verdict".
The possibility that he did eat something he shouldn't have does exist and "..need another meeting in six..." protects their cushy jobs. I think you've nailed this one.
