Not really, media have over hyped it again. If the drug in his inhaler is legal, and rightfully so I see no real issue. I've used inhalers for years as and when needed. Helps you stop dying.....hes happy for daily checks during events and tbh they ain't gonna go easy. He's not worried.

I hope this bottoms out. Bad timing for spoty!

My GB bias is giving the benefit of the doubt to CF.

I’d be less charitable to others, which I guess reveals my own bias

To get that level of salbutamol in his blood he'd have to have taken over 30 puffs on his inhaler. Sounds like bollocks to me TBH.

I'm kind of at the point now of thinking they might as well give up and let them kill themselves with drugs if they want to. At least it produced some entertaining racing. Look at Lance go in this clip, for example.

2 puffs every half an hour if required until symptoms have cleared. makes sense as ive had days were ive been terrible with my asthma.

worse things happening in the world than an asthmatic using his inhaler........EPO etc on the other hand...

The handling of Chris Froome's adverse drugs test by cycling authorities is a "scandal" and a "double standard" is being applied, says four-time world time trial champion Tony Martin.

They’ll all be bitching at each other, too much like football imho, tbh isn’t it funny there’s no scandals in mtb racing. That I know of haha
