Robert Heras - what is he up to?

All the doping talk and mention of the Vuelta in another thread made me wonder what's up with Heras
these days. He was suspended about 2 years ago wasn't he? If so, he should be available next season. Anyone know what his status is?

It looks like he was with Liberty Seguros-Würth when they became Astana, then left the team after the EPO positive. I'm not seeing anything after that.

Here's a great resource (you can search for riders at the bottom):

My guess is he's up to a hematocrit higher than 50

He was interviewed a couple weeks ago. Said he had a couple offers, but will only come back for a decent salary, otherwise it's time to move on. $30,000 US is not going to bring him out to play.
