Tom Boonen will find out on Friday whether he has been granted a last minute reprieve to compete in the Tour de France which starts in Monaco on Saturday.

PARIS - The former world road race champion from Belgium was barred from the Tour following a positive test for cocaine in April.

Boonen's fate is being decided by the French Olympic Committee's arbitration panel.

The Quick Step rider missed last year's Tour for similar reasons.
