tom boonenFor the second year in a row, Tom Boonen, winner of the 2009 Paris-Roubaix, has been banned from the Tour de France after testing positive for cocaine.

The upshot of the whole situation for Boonen is that he’ll have time to work on getting back together with Sophie Van Vliet.

    Actually his girlfriend is no longer Sophie Van Vliet but Lore Van De Weyer.
    Not a good reason to sniff coke.
