De Cauwer case postponed

Belgian national coach Jose De Cauwer's doping case has been postponed until October 4 by the court in Antwerp. De Cauwer is accused of supplying former rider Ronny Vansweevelt with amphetamines via De Cauwer's mailbox. His lawyer is arguing that since the events happened 10 years ago, the case should be dropped.

De Cauwer commented to VRT, "I would have preferred to have heard the pronouncement today rather than tomorrow. As long as there is no ruling, everything remains the same as it is now. I can continue working for the cycling federation with a clean conscience." He added that he hoped to be cleared when the case finally concludes.
