"Sky say Froome's salbutamol concentration was 2000ng/ml.

Diego Ulissi got a nine-month ban for 1920ng/ml in 2014.

Petacchi got a year for
1320ng/ml in 2007.

BUT Leonardo Piepoli got no ban for levels reportedly similar to Petacchi's in 2007."

With UKAD in charge I am sure he will get 3 months over the winter and keep the Vuelta title.

It looks like this

1 Froome suffering in Los Machucos
2 Team decided to increase a dose of salbutamol twice
3 Froome tested positive
4 Froome dominates a time trial
5 Froome confidently goes in Angliru

The only answer to let Froome off, but also give Ulissi and Petacchi both a Vuelta title retrospectively. Then it is all fair and good.

You have to hope that this will only add to the smoking gun that is stacking up against Sky and that the Murdoch group will pull the sponsorship asap.

I don't hope that.
Froome has always stood for me a totem of clean racing, I'm withholding judgement until the UCI actually say something proper.
All we have is an investigation by La Monde and the Guardian newspapers so far and a statement from the uci saying that there was an irregular test of salbutamol.

this says salbutamol don't do much http://thorax.bmj.com/content/56/9/675

am i missing something, like does it mask etc? do people take alot just for the mental fillip it provides them perhaps?

Are you serious?! The guy who had an emergency TUE rushed through before Romandie 2014, a race that he went on to win.

Every rider is a totem of clean riding until they get caught. And this is not the first controverse around Froome or Sky.

What I don't understand, is why THEY let ill people take drugs to be better than healthy athletes... ?

You're asthmatic, ok, cure yourself, just don't race.
You need corticosteroids just before your big race? Ok, cure yourself, just don't race.
etc.

Regarding Froome's AAF. I think Cookson no longer being there to 'offer protection' may also be one factor to consider, when thinking about the whys, whos etc.

Why would you want less money in cycling?
