Specialized Venge road bike - adaptable for tri?

Had a brief conversation with an elite competitor at a tri the other week who was riding a very sexy Specialized Venge aero road bike.

It had clip on aero bars and a tri saddle and he said it was perfectly fine for long course. That's despite it being a road bike with road geometry (ie: seatpost angled more than a TT bike)

Can anyone tell me if they've used one and how they've got on? Specifically also interested to know if I heard correctly that the Venge seatpost can be reversed or adapted in some way to make it more like a TT position (ie: open hips better for running off the bike). If so, could this be a solution to the problem of having to buy multiple bikes?

Thanks in advance
