Without getting into a huge debate over this, the new Astana team has nothing to do with the old one. I look forward to seeing the new Astana team compete in next year's tour.

If that's your only criteria, there would be a lot less entries in any TdF, both past and present. Truth is, the governing bodies can't even get their act together, and their haphazard decisions reflect that fact. It's taken a team like Slipstream (now Garmin) to implement their own testing - no thanks and no help from the ICU or ASO. And recently there's been a split with ASO in France, Italy's RCS and Spain's Unipublic. Clearly, Astana's ban was the result of politics as usual among these bickering bodies. So if you're gonna lay blame, go to the source:

BTW Specialized guy, doesn't Boonen ride Specialized? Or is that different. :yesnod:
