Hamilton among Operación Puerto names?
Velochimp translates and amplifies an article from Tuttobiciweb.com (in Italian), itself a translation of a story from El Pais (in Spanish), that claims to document Tyler Hamilton's 2003 doping schedule, with a bill for products and services (43,500 euros in all).
According to the El Pais article, Hamilton used EPO daily for a few days in late 2002, then every other day until January 9th. On the 14th, time for a blood donation, saved for later use, then anabolic steroids starting January 24th. In March, Tyler was to ramp up HMG use as he tapered the anabolic steroids.
Hamilton then went back on EPO and steroids for May, in preparation for his 2003 Tour de France, when he broke his collarbone and took an epic, if tarnished, Stage 16 victory.
gee.. it's from bad to worse for little Tyler.
And a great big tragic fall. Too bad.

Ever since Tyler's bust I just felt like, if he's doing it, who isn't?
