How long does it take for results to be made public?

It usually takes a while. Most riders it will take some months. I'm
guess these will be quick. But then again we don't know the "true"
reasons for the test.
I would guess we probably won't know until end of or even after the
Tour.
But as I say... there are a lot of variables here.

Side Note: the amount of blood they remover for testing is very small,
within 24 hours his blood will be replaced, however, the amounts taken
are SO small, it doesn't really make any difference.

The random element is not necessarily limited to which rider, it could
also be the timing of the test.

If the tests where at a "random time" as you suggest, shouldn't you
know this for certain? Why are guessing?

Just curious.

I'm suggesting it *could* be. I like speculation and coming up with
creative alternatives. Never assume.

I can't say anything until I know it for certain?! That's dumb.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought to perform the test that brought down
Hamilton, a vail of blood is needed. That's not a great deal of blood but
it sure won't be replaced in 24 hours!
