Ha!

So let me get this straight...

Last year Boonen tests positive for cocaine and doesn't get to ride the Tour.
This year Boonen tests positive for cocaine and DOES get to ride the Tour.

WTF?!? Ha! Oh, professional cycling! You are such a farce!

I can see it now, some wide-eyed 16-year old Boonen wanna-be amateur racer..."Um, coach...so is it good or bad to do coke?"


Make up your mind cycling or you will NEVER be taken seriously and will NEVER find a solution to your problems!

Or try the fact that out-of-competition positives are not released in France for instance. So French riders can snort as much coke as they want out-of-competition and their names will not be released. Boonen has the misfortune to live in a country where out-of-competition test results are released to the public. So Boonen can be banned from the TdF (but isn't this year) for making a positive out-of-competition test public, but French riders never will be because their out-of-competition tests will never be made public. Not fair either IMO.
