Froome tells the BBC that WADA must tighten TUE regs:
Funny that Froome should have had an attack of morality during the 2015 Tour.
He had no such qualms one year earlier when he applied for a TUE for banned corticosteroids prior to the Tour de Romandie and had it fast-tracked, so that he could compete in that race.
He must have really needed it, poor lamb. Must be terrible having to race against world class competitors when you are so poorly that you need 40mg per day of Prednisolone.
Still, winning the overall race and winning the final time trial in front of world TT champion Tony Martin probably made up for feeling so poorly.
An apt metaphor for his retirement - jumping before he was pushed.
Strictly next year?
Maybe the elastic nature of his retirement/career/retirement/career/retirement finally snapped and his management told him to pack it in (the needle hanging above him probably helped Fuller tell Wiggins what to do)
Maybe they'll register the drugs link and think he'll be great at the "Pass a Doobie"
Cav will be able to give him some great tips!
Here's Sirdave speaking with his hands, claiming no rules were broken and the TUE thing was "regrettable", but he's not so sure about Froomedog's faith in him
Hmmmm......is he thinking of going into politics 'cause he's sounding just like a politician in that interview.
He always has, it's just that previously he has not had to field difficult questions*
*edit - not that the questions were that difficult!
All the way through that interview I kept thinking of Tyler Hamilton .. Once he was put in front of a Grand Jury and was told that he could face serious jail time if his testimony before them were found to be false, suddenly out came the truth!
Two things strike me about Dave Brailsford ...
He seems to be the kind of leader who would keep very close control of what was going on in his organisation.
If there happened to be something that he wanted to know, but DIDN'T know, he would have the people who DID know in his office ASAP and demand that they explain things to him.
All this talk of trying to discover what happened, searching for evidence etc. just sounds like building a future defence based on ignorance of events.
Interesting. Some of his points were fair, some werent.
His opening critiscism of the UKAD CEO was just wrong. The UKAD guy was commenting on the answers DB gave at the Parliamentary hearing....which is not part of the UKAD investigation. Therefore the UKAD man was not commenting on his own investigation, as DB claimed.
He looked and sounded very rattled.
Sirdave has "lost touch" and is "too clever for his own good" according to the Guardian
