The CyclingNews says that the UCI has placed Bjorn Leukemans back into its "whereabouts" system thus indicating that at least for now he can ride, IF he can find a team that will take him.
The NY Times writes about the distinct possibility that over 100 major league ball players could be prosecuted for steroid usage linked to tests from 2003:
According to a lawyer who spoke on condition of anonymity because the government’s plans are supposed to remain confidential, federal authorities will seek to question each of the 104 players about where and how they obtained the substance detected in their urine samples. The authorities then intend to distribute the information they receive to federal prosecutors around the country
If this precedent is set, it is unclear how this could effect anyone who has ever tested positive for any PED in any sport.
Rant notes that even the "high and mighty", like the IHT, can make mistakes. Oops indeed.
