I wouldn't condone cocaine use, but Tom Boonen is a rockstar. From cyclingnews.com:

... on April 24 where he was clocked doing 129 km/h in a 70 km/h zone. The report claims Boonen did not deny speeding and that he was aware of his error. He received a 412.50 euro fine and 31 day licence suspension.

The second offense occurred several weeks later. The report claims he was traveling 180 km/h in a 90 km/h zone when the police clocked him on the ring road around Mol, Belgium on June 3.

In addition to holding his mobile phone while driving, Boonen allegedly returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.75, the result of four glasses of champagne he had drunk earlier in the evening.

I like Boonen, but he sure is setting a bad example by talking on his cell while driving.
