The French Court of Arbitration for Sport will today announce whether Tom Boonen will ride this year's Tour de France, according to Reuters.

The Belgian initiated legal action against Tour de France organiser Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO) following its decision to exclude him after his third out-of-competition positive for cocaine in a year.

After the court of Nanterre was declared 'incompetent' to decide on the issue the only possible solution was to bring the matter before the French Olympic Committee.

"The document will be revised on Thursday so we can make the decision before the Tour," said a spokesman for the French Court of Arbitration for Sport.
