Thumbs up The Hog?

My brother told me that Johan Bruyneel's nickname is the Hog? Is this true and if so how did he get that name?

The nickname came from his days at ONCE. His team-mates gave it to him due to his insatiable drug appetite and that he'd try any chemical substance at least once. There are stories in Flemish on the web that he used to suck up the gear “like a hog” hence the name.
