SIMONI ACQUITTED ON COCAINE CHARGESwheelsucker

this is fabulous news, says he's going to ride the vuelta. I think he might try and win it to get some positive press and to show how good he is since he and saeco got snubbed for the tour. The cocaine was apparently from some chocolates from peru that mrs. moser gave him. Can't wait to see him challenge Lance next year, make for a much better tour, especially when he beats him!

I hope this news is the real deal.

I dont know how to take this info. Certainly I hope that it really was the candy that did it to him. I find it hard to believe that the "Ben Johnson" approach finally worked for someone. It didnt work for the athletes in the Olympics.

If it really was the candy he deserves to be exonerated. If it wasnt, then he has an incredible "sweet tooth."

Chocolate covered crack...
are you sure it was msr moser, not Lance?cyclopathic

how much FAT there is in chocolate!
If the story is sincere, poor Simoni! Imagine the shock and stress of testing positive for cocaine if you haven't ingested anything stronger than gran's chocolate.

Good luck to him if he is clean.

...given that his first explanation was that he got coked up by his oral surgeon.

he honestly had no clue where it came from. I am sure he even thought somebody set him up. There's so much money involved in pro cycling gambling setting someone up is the easiest way get rid of competition.
