I wouldn't be worried if he can prove what he said is true about being authorised by the doctor

Reminds me of Lance Armstrong, circa 1998-2005.

What with Nigel Farage being the King of England and and a Russian stooge you would be mortified being British at the moment. Well besides Earl and Willie and bimbo and Trance. Everybody else is mortified

Bloody hell, he took his inhaler more during a bit of chestiness - like every other asthmatic in the western world.

Let’s see - denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance - ah yes we’re at bargaining now are we. Sure every other cyclist is doing it! What’s the harm?

I can only conceive of two outcomes, either he is asthmatic and the doctors have got it wrong as he knows he is going to be tested every day.

Or Sky are using masking agents and have f**ked up on this particular day and are for all their clean chat as bent as the rest.

IMO it’s the first Froome doesn’t strike me as a cheat but who knows??

He's used asthmatic medication for years. he knows the in's and out's. He tested for having double the WADA limit. It wasn't some case that he accidentally slipped over the guidelines by taking it an hour to early or something. He was doped to the eyeballs.

So if he/Team Sky can't prove he tested so high despite taking a legal amount, what are we looking at? I assume a ban would be on the cards.

He's f**ked.

In the current climate I wonder if it could now be harsher, also whether this might trigger re-testing of previous samples

It should be harsher. And that team has been playing the holier than thou card for way too long.

Indeed, its quite odd how many of them are asthmatic. When I was in school the asthmatics tended to be very poor athletes who struggled in sports and tended to get bullied. A different type of asthmatic I suppose

Effort-induced asthma.


In my sport (rowing) it is frequently seen amongst junior girls and is associated with high levels of effort and associated anxiety. It rarely occurs within winning crews (or individuals) although this may be effect rather than cause. A substantial number of young females carry inhalers.

It only VERY rarely occurs amongst adults, male or female even at the highest domestic levels. At these levels the intensity of training (and competition) does not differ greatly from those of international athletes (the programmes and races are the same, the intl. competitors are bigger and more skilful).

I find the incidence of effort induced asthma in international sports people highly odd.

Something came out this week about highly active teenagers needing inhalers, particularly the summer, and they don’t know why. Pollen does cause serious issues for people tbf.
