Boonen to sue

TOM Boonen is set to take Tour de France organizers to court in Paris tomorrow over their refusal to let him compete in next month's race due to the Belgian rider testing positive for cocaine for the second time in less than a year. Boonen and his Quick Step team decided to act after the ASO, which owns the Tour, said the cyclist would be banned even though the international cycling federation has taken no action. "Quick Step and Tom Boonen have decided to use all legal means possible to oppose this decision," they said in a statement. Boonen's latest positive test was carried out in April. The 28-year-old tested positive for the same drug in May 2008 and was banned by Tour organizers from last year's event.
