How did we do it? In our campaign to bring together Team Rehab for the Dopers Reunion Tour de France 2010, how did we forget about Tom Boonen?
Admittedly, Boonen did not test positive for a performance enhancer. He was dinged for cocaine, which only makes you THINK your performance is enhanced. Still, drugs is drugs, and his second cocaine test in the plus column in two years is good enough to get Tom onto our Dream Team. As his team manager so persuasively put it: “He’s a very good guy, and a good rider, and I think he understands what he’s done in the past and won’t repeat it.” Yes, just like after the first time he tested positive.
