    Absence of medical records, heard that one before...

    It's a fair catalogue of names involved, wonder if that's it for Sky and the funding for British Cycling?

    This is old news - The irony is British politicians aided and abetted this deception with their lack of rigour and reporting systems towards British Cycling - of course Politician's were cheerleaders while athletes were winning medals/championships, then backpedal at a million miles per hour when their is a whiff of a scandal - Colour me cynical.

    Would have thought former track cyclists dropping the worlds best climbers on the French mountains would have raised some concerns

    I’m waiting for the spin they go with when Froome gets sanctioned and they refuse to enact their zero tolerance policy and throw him off the team.

    It’s the US Postal show all over again, same script and all.

    Froome to ride the Giro, nothing else is really known as yet that I’ve heard.

    Sky may need to look at other ways to "maximize" Salbutamol intake in the future, if the allowed intake is reduced.

    Interesting comment at the end around offer of WADA assistance being declined by UCI and not being "in control of the process".
    That's indicating that they may have had some info/interpretation to bring to bear but weren't allowed to.

    So decided not to take to CAS, but instead look to go after the current minimum allowed.

    Dodged this bullet, may need a better defense in the future.

    I am actually happy that Froome challenged and won his case - I've never been happy with allowed substances being subject to threshold issues - Substances are either banned or not.
