geez, you really can't see it, can you?

Froome didn't get sick and took the meds to save his health - he took them with premeditation because he felt as an "asthmatic" he can cheat his way from a situation where performance deficiency saw him lose precious time. this is no better than Lance's withdrawn positive - because what's the difference between a post dated prescription and an abundantly overused TUE?

Inhaled Salbutamol doesn't provide an advantage. There's quite a distinct difference between the two cases.

Froome hiding behind an illness like he is attempting to do is quite disgraceful.

Can we please move and focus on equipment.
If you want to talk about doping you can do it at cyclingnews clininc, not here.

At very least perhaps Canyon will redo the bike colouring?

Now that Froome got a double positive with A and B samples, his two missed out of competition tests makes you go hmmmmm.

They need better doping programmes like Froome and Wiggins.

beating a dead horse, but it is possible his inhaler was defective and metering out more than the prescribed dose with each hit. I know someone who got a prescription cream compound from a pharmacy where the active ingredient concentration was at least 5 times higher than it was supposed to be. Mistakes do happen (though I am aware that many other have played this card).

Or that he ingested this instead of inhaling it.

Or that somebody put him something in his water bottle

Yes sure.....SKY is controlling every tiny bit of everything....marginal gains to achieve wins and money.

By the same logic an energy gel or bottle of water is performance enhancing
