He was banned from racing on French soil for 6 months (starting in April 2003 if I recall)because of
the salbutamol incident in the 2002 TdF. The Vuelta enters France. Can the French make trouble for
him? Did he have to get permission from the French to race there?

Of course they'd have to catch him first :)

Phil said yesterday that the French had decided not to interfere with a race that was the production
of another country.

From Cyclingnews:

The CPLD ban pertains to events organised or authorised by the French cycling federation (FFC).

"The Vuelta does not fall into either category," FFC legal representative Christophe Lavergne told
l'Equipe. "For us these two riders have the right to race in France on Friday and Saturday."

He was permitted to race into France today after the powers that be decided that the race was
organized by a foreign nation.

Thanks,

I remember seeing a race last year (I think it was in Belgium) a race where a rider had to stay keep
one side of the road during part of the race because the other side of the road was in another
region where he wasn't allowed. I don't remember who or what race it was.

It was VDB in TRW.

That's right, he could ride in Wallonie but not Flandres. I think they even changed the course for
him so that it wouldn't enter Flandres, but just skirt it.

That must have been a bugger if there was a crosswind on the "wrong" side...
