CAS says Belgian champion can race
Tom Boonen can start in the Tour de France tomorrow, the Court of Arbitration for Sport of the French Olympic Committee has ruled.
It overturned the decision of the ASO, the Tour organiser, to exclude the Team Quick Step sprinter because of his positive out-of-competition tests for cocaine. The court's decision cannot be appealed.
