    A sad end to an underwhelming career after so much promise.

    One of those guys who in my mind was always tainted by the previous incident (mainly as I never heard much about the outcome!)

    I thought AAF's were supposed to remain anonymous, no suspension until proven etc or is it because a different substance to Froome?
    The only disability in life is a poor attitude.

    It's because it's a different substance. Although I thought it is supposed to be confidential until the B sample has been tested - maybe that's changed.

    i guess it`s because it`s a banned substance and salbutamol isn`t . just has a limit .

    There are specified substances (like salbutamol) which can be easily taken or overdosed on by accident, and generally don't have long lasting effects. These should be kept anonymous until a hearing and do not require a provisional suspension.
    Then there's non-specified substances, which includes all the proper doping products and which have no business being in your body. Automatic provisional suspension. It doesn't have to be announced, but can be without the consent of the defendant.

  • End of career madness - looking for a swansong

    I had a rant on here a few years back when - as a very gifted climber he was 'discarded' by shutup Jens and batterypac in the alps :shock:

    fascinating reaction to this test failure.Its as if its been swept under the carpet or is the underwhelming response from the cycling world caused by him not being a hugely successful British rider?

    It's probably more likely to be discussed in French forums.

    I like this post which makes a lot of use of emojis (also a lot of French slang)

    I think "not hugely successful" might be the main reason.

    Which the Asylum can turn into "if he's doing EPO and can't win, WHAT ARE THE REST ON!!!!!!!"

    I suspect he’s a lot more succesful than most posters on here, he’s also ill and not trying to tell us its not cheating because he was only bringing himself up to the level of the others.

    He's ill? Your post is a bit confusing.

    It's true, he has won 4 more professional bike races than most. Not sure what the relevance of this is.

    He doesn’t ride for Sky. Therefore it’s fine.

    Could mean anything tbf. Someone got busted and gave up everything they knew, thru to someone grassing or even just someone noticing suspicious stock counts in a provincial pharmacy.

    Does show again tho that testing has its limitations and good, old-fashioned detective work is invaluable in the fight against doping.
