A winning return ... doping-ban and somehow I had missed the CAS ruling :

Georges took his case the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which ruled that it was “completely convinced that Mr Georges hadn’t intended to cheat or improve his sporting performance by taking Ginkor Fort. It is unfortunate that he has committed such a mistake, which has stained his antidoping record.”

Speaking earlier this week to French website Velo-Club, Georges responded to the recent linking of his case with those of Mondory and Houanard by stating: “I’ve fought to show that I’ve been nothing more than negligent, which has been recognised by the courts. I’ve been sanctioned on that basis and not as a cheat. It upsets me to see it regarded as a ‘doping case’… a division has to be made between those who are cheating deliberately and a positive test as a result of molecule that’s present in a product for sale in pharmacies.”
