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.
Exactly. Nothing was done by accident or happenstance.

You can't make this stuff up. I like the Jaschke BB conspiracy. Very salacious. Might start writing my screenplay now.

wait.. Movistar is also doing the fade to black like Astana? That's outrageously dumb. I was fine with the color (looks more like Sky's Rapha training kit from a couple years ago) but also doing the fade to black is bit too much..

At least movistar's canyon aeroads look really good in their new colourway...but then again, that bike looks awesome with practically anything on it! Trek's new kit looks way better than last year, and I already liked lasts year kit a lot, so a nice change indeed! The bibs do need a liitle more work though, as it has already been pointed out.So which other WT team hasn't put out their new kit out already? Can't wait! Also, a new shiv, finally!!!! :D

I think Froome inhaled some tainted Spanish beef from a cow with asthma.

By the same logic an energy gel or bottle of water is performance enhancing
You know, I may be wrong, but I believe all humans need food and water in order to perform basic metabolic functions.

Are you suggesting that the vast majority of humans do NOT need to food and water to do so?

Energy gel or drinks aren't natural combinations or concentrations. Same with recovery drinks or umpteen legal supplements.

No, that would be silly. Just trying to understand what rule is being proposed about banning people with medical conditions from taking part in sport. If I break my clavicle is it cheating to take painkillers?

It would be interesting to see them alongside with CCC Sprandi Polkowice riders :)
