    Tom Boonen has been busted, not for performance enhancers, but his career may still be over.
    Here's a link to the story, it may be at the bottom of the page:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    You're f***ing kidding me, right? Teams will be lining up to sign him when his contract expires.

    Newsflash, dimwit. The Tour ain't everything, particularly if you're from Belgium. Provided he doesn't go to jail, he still has a very promising future.

    True, but at least he's got something to fall back on.

    No he's not - it's a suspended sentence. So he'll pay the fine, but not see a day in jail.
