Italian cycling star Ivan Basso has signed a two-year deal with the U.S.-based Discovery Channel pro team.

Basso's signing is a strong indication that the Spanish doping investigation that kept Basso and other top riders from competing in the 2006 Tour de France is fizzling out.

"We are excited about Ivan joining the team," Discovery director Johan Bruyneel said Wednesday. "We're looking forward to having him at Discovery Channel's training camp in Austin on December 3."

What Spanish Inquisition do you speak of? Operacion Puerto was just a prank by a bunch of keystone kops with a sick sense of humor. Oughta just face the truth: Ya can't ride TdF on bread and water alone.
