  3. Boonen's cocaine positive causing stir http://www.cyclingnews.com/photos/2008/may08/belgium08/belgium085/DSC_0143tn.jpg Paris-Roubaix champion Tom Boonen, one of Belgium's biggest idols, is standing in hot water following the confirmation of a positive anti-doping control for cocaine on May 25. Though the control will likely not involve a suspension, it does not make it easy on the 27 year-old's Quick Step team, who are in the hunt for a new sponsor. The test results, controlled by the Vlaamse Gemeeenschap (Flemish Community), were confirmed and will be sent to World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the International Cycling Union (UCI). Cocaine is forbidden within races, but as the control was taken three days before the start of the Tour of Belgium, where Boonen went on to win the final stage, he is likely to avoid a racing ban. Even though the Vlaamse Gemeeenschap will not issue a suspension, the UCI could impose a stop of up to two years. It was reported that Boonen's parents' and girlfriend's homes were searched by police, and it is confirmed now that the authorities did not find any banned products. < =text/> Is Boonen ? winner of two editions of the Paris-Roubaix and Ronde van Vlaanderen, and the 2005 World Championship title ? too much of a liability as Team Manager Patrick Lefevere hunts for a new financial supporter? The team and Boonen are meeting today in light of the recent news and more details are expected soon.

  5. Surely his Bianchi's set-up was in place, but that was the very reason he got fired, he didn't ride a Schwinn bike.
  6. We know by now that Schwinn didn't had time trial bikes for the guys, can you imagine if Hanco could have had Shaun's bike what he's time would have been. Schwinn cost Hanco his third won in the SA TT
  7. Knorrie, maybe you should have asked, who didn't want Shaun to ride the TT? Surely if you get fired 20-minutes before your TT starts and there is no time for bike set-up, Shaun had no other choice but to cover all stickers on his Bianchi, get into neutral clothes and do his ride.
  9. Big H. bly net waar jy is. As jy oorsee is vir fietsry, bly net waar jy is. S.A fietsry is 'n klug. Jy is bevoorreg om daar te wees. Hier moet jy behoorlik gatkruip en die regte ouens ken. Los Sammajoor uit, hy is hier, ek wil glo hy weet wat aangaan. Nog 'n ding, ek is nie een van die ouens wat al gevat is vir 'n ride, ek is een van die ouens wat dit probeer STOP. Ek glo S.A fietsry is een helse klug. Ek behoort te weet waarvan ek praat, en is immers aangestel om al die k.... uit te sort. Kom ons kyk na die Morokko results, ek hoop jy sal dan man genoeg wees om te erken dit was 'n fout.
  10. Obviously Big H you're one of the guys that just except the changes lately being done in selected teams. When is this going to stop. First of all Nolan hoffman was taken out of the team to make way for Mike. There is NO comparrisson between Hoffman and Mike. Is this a matter of "who knows who" - Secondly it's becoming the norm to change selected riders, after it's being published, for specific tours. Look at the results of last year's Morokko. Who featured? In my eyes Mike is a rookie, not a bad rider, but really, its's not the type of race to put a guy in without ANY exsperience. What is it going to take for Hoffman to get into a team without ignorance selectors. This really has got to stop, it's negative and exstemely demotivated for any rider to be selected, and to read, he's out. Sorry to say my friend, it seems you haven't been in that situation, so shut your big mouth.
  11. Seven out of seven for Harmony/SchwinnPosted on 18 May 2007 - 10:46 http://images.supersport.co.za/MichaelSowerbyMay07180.jpgThe Harmony/Schwinn Pro Men?s Team have managed to achieve a remarkable SA National Team representation, by having all seven riders being selected for various tours and events around the world for the National Squad, in 2007 alone. The latest edition being Michael Sowerby, who has been selected for the SA National Team for the Tour of Morocco, taking place from the 8th ? 17th June 2007. He will be joining teammate, Hanco Kachelhoffer, as well as Jeremy Maartens, Chris Willemse (both CSC/Marcello) and Jaco Venter, Johan Rabie from Exel. Durwan Benjamin and Paul Minnaar will be representing South Africa at the UCI B World Champs in Cape Town, at the end of June. Hanco Kachelhoffer has just recently returned from a European campaign with the under-23 National Team, where they were racing the under-23 Nations Cup. Juan van Heerden returns this weekend from Europe after a short stint with the under-23 team. The team will be at the South African National Road and Time Trial Champs, which are being held in Bloemfontein, from the 31st of May to 3rd of June.
