BMC, Ballan and Santambrogio - doing the hokey cokey

The story so far: B&S were banned by the team for suspicion of being involved in a Gazetta dello Sport article. Then they were unbanned, after BMC cleared them on no particular evidence apart from a general feeling that you should never believe what you read in the newspapers. Then they were banned again, as the Italian police were investigating activities at Lampre and possibly leaked new information to BMC, for purposes unclear (are you keeping up at the back?) Well, the left leg is out again (for the moment) as BMC reverse their reversal and have reactivated the two riders, just in time for Ballan to have missed the Giro and not be selected for a Tour squad which is all in for Cadel. Which is fine, because doping scandals are not particularly high up the agenda right at this moment. Anyone with any good ideas, please send them to the Clue Department, BMC racing team, as soon as possible. Either these two stink to high heaven and are getting a free pass, or they are seriously getting screwed around by a management which has no idea what it is doing. Either way, it ain't great
