its exactly the same just on an individual level

here's what the rules say

Except:
• Inhaled salbutamol: maximum 1600 micrograms over
24 hours in divided doses not to exceed 800 micrograms
over 12 hours starting from any dose;
• Inhaled formoterol: maximum delivered dose of
54 micrograms over 24 hours;
• Inhaled salmeterol: maximum 200 micrograms over
24 hours.
The presence in urine of salbutamol in excess of 1000 ng/mL
or formoterol in excess of 40 ng/mL is not consistent with
therapeutic use of the substance and will be considered as an
Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF) unless the Athlete proves,
through a controlled pharmacokinetic study, that the
abnormal result was the consequence of a therapeutic dose
(by inhalation) up to the maximum dose indicated above.


I've helped with the emphasis obvs ;)

So...really simple yes or no question. Did Froome's case follow the rules?

Edit. As a PS...of course that's important as we don't know how his body reacts to the input values of salbutomol which he self reported during the Vuelta...WADA had no way of knowing what they actually were.....so...how would you find that out for any given individual??....yup...a pharmacokinetic study........but you know this ;)


You could indeed argue that the rules have not been followed in the Froome case, but in doing so you must also factor in that the man who effectively introduced the test and therefore the associated rules, has come out and admitted that the test is flawed. Therefore by association the rules applicable to said test must also be flawed and open to challenge. The rules were challenged successfully.

That's an entirely different scenario to the whole Russia saga. So not the same at all really.

It's pretty complicated to get right this asthma inhaler thing. It definitely required £billions of state-funded control and government control via NHS to get the blue inhalers to the athletes without anyone noticing!

The defense of someone like froome always breaks down at the point their fans start to act like an accusation of doping against a cyclist (let alone a 4x tdf champion) is some sort of ridiculous proposition out of touch with reality.

"fairytales", "conspiracy theories" etc.

Perhaps, but in this discussion, equating a NADO's non-compliance with an athletes AAF is simply dumb whatever way you want to spin it.

speaking of fairytales

WADA just let Russia back into the sporting world.

I think the hammering WADA are getting across the board including guys like Callum Skinner throws Froome's Salbutamol case out the window as far as Skyfans want to claim he didn't dope.

WADA were never fit for purpose.

They were created by IOC as a smoke screen.

No one is killing common sense apart from Skyfans who appear to live in lalaland. :D

While looking for other material, I noticed that there was this item published in Lancet about salbutamol/TDF etc., the items that were debated here not-too-long time ago.

https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(18)31866-X/fulltext
(copy-paste the url, parentheses cause Lancet links never to work properly)

I have almost zero interest on the Froome-asthma case and can't evaluate how significant/interesting that item is.

Whilst the blood passport is a sort of attempt......we need something like this in cycling....well...of course we do have the straight face test I suppose.....

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-45812210

An Unexplained 'Form' Order :D :D

The questions would have been asked in Autumn '11

Mr Froome....how do you support this sudden and completedly unexpected increase in form? (Michelle hurridly looks in bag for tropical disease/fax/set of scales)

I thought that would be the Austin article I have been trying to find, and which doesn't come up in any searches. But no, some other authors, and the article doesn't seem to add anything new. After a very brief summary of the Froome case, they conclude with this gem:

Despite the controversy surrounding the resolution of Froome's case and the long history of doping in cycling, an optimistic vision of professional cycling is not necessarily naive. Athletes' temptation for banned substances will always exist, but using doping agents with a clear ability to manipulate sports capabilities, notably those enhancing oxygen supply to working muscles, the main limiting factor for endurance performance, is becoming increasingly difficult—cyclists' haematocrit values now resemble those reported in the so-called pre-erythropoietin era.5 The ability to endure a gruelling training regime distinguishes cycling champions.


The posted link doesn't work, though when I found the note (it's not an article, just a few short paragraphs), the URL was the same as that link.

Is there any difference to what you state and how the Sky/Froome Defense Initiative springing into action whenever and where ever his reputation is besmirched?

Different? Well, yes!

I’d say that besmirching outstrips smooching at about 10 to 1. Besmirchers can’t get enough of it ... can they? ;)
