Hamilton hearing on September 6

Tyler Hamilton's hearing in front of the Swiss Court of Arbitration for Sport will not take place...

Tyler Hamilton's hearing in front of the Swiss Court of Arbitration for Sport will not take place until September 6, the Boston Globe reports. Hamilton tested positive for a homologous blood transfusion during the Vuelta España on September 11 last year. In April of this year, he was given a two year ban by the US Anti-Doping Agency, but the three-member arbitration panel was not unanimous in its conclusion that he was guilty. Hamilton then decided to appeal to the international Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, but now it appears that his hearing will take place almost a year after his initial positive test.
