|All I know is he was caught with a tinny bit of cocaine in the urine. I think it was debated on here already whether or not cocaine was a performance enhancer but I forget what was decided. I missed a lot of the coverage so maybe they went into it, whats there to know.|

|run search you might be able to look it up.
Enhancer or not under no circumstances coke he took a month before Giro could influence his results. Never the less Giro organizers booted him out. Simoni is being investigated by Italian police and he can possibly face UCI suspension for use/possession of banned substance. There's also a rumor any pro caught using Rogaine, Viagra or cold medication will face similar fate.

|The Giro didn't boot him out, Saeco, under pressure from other teams and the Giro, pulled him out.
