From what has come to light so far it seems that Mr Wiggins has not broken any UCI or WADA rules. His use of TUEs only came to light because of a Russian hacking group (probably linked to the Russian Government) which published confidential medical records, and all the subsequent investigations have stemmed from this.
Could it be that the Russians wanted this to happen as it takes the focus off what they may or may not have been doing.
Mr Wiggins may not be as pure as the driven snow but we are looking at a few minor infractions (legal at the time) which maybe against the Team Sky ethos, but it is far from the systematic doping of the Armstrong era.
Could this just be a storm in a teacup and a smokescreen for the Russians?

No, not all of them. There's a lot of smart, experienced commentators in there but it's littered with bots and people that are not willing to let go of deep rooted biases.


Yeah I must start reading the comments more. Mainly intelligent and funny for that article, good funny that is.
Amazing what blind bias does to some other people though.

logologic:
Wiggins has been pilloried by the Press. Apparently he is fair game for following the rules. A lot of scribblers for the red tops and even the Guardian think they are going to find a big story on Wiggins. I can tell you that they will not. Wiggins has kept his powder dry out of proper respect for the official enquiry. Scribblers, however, lacking any evidence whatsoever are quite content to take him straight to execution, no trial. I can tell you that he will not be charged with anything, there will not be any trial. The people who will be shocked are the failures who have run whingeing to the Press because they were not up to scratch and did not get selected by British Cycling for the Olympics.

Wiggins will tell it how it is, without fear or favour. He is a man to respect and revere, a fantastic example to young cyclists.

According the bots at BotRadar, rasism is acceptable if it's perpetrated by a Sky rider... shaking my head.

Poorly done mind, you.

Look at the reactions from team owners, politicians, sports administrators and fans to racism in Baseball from Redsock fans. There has been total outage and condemnation, to a standing ovation to Adam Jones for the way he dealt with the monkey taunts.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/02/sports/baseball/adam-jones-orioles-red-sox-racist-taunts.html?_r=0

Cycling way of dealing is to pretend it didn't happen and to pass it off as a Monty Python joke. That's shitfull but I wouldn't expect much more from BotRadar.

Well I'm not sure I would view an off the cuff joke made by a poster on Bikerader as really that significant. Certainly not as representative of the reaction of the cycling world to racism. I don't think there is any need to be oversensitive about somebody making a joke about Moscon's racist comment (or rather Reza's reaction to it) especially when you realise the joke is deeply ironic. Plus it made me laugh.

But anyway, back on topic, I'd agree with the analysis made by previous posters which is that Moscon's actual ban amounts to very little. What does amount to something is that he is also being served with a final warning, although should another incident arise with Moscon I wouldnt put it past Sky to hold one of their very serious internal investigations, the result of which will never see the light of day.

I've got 3 email addresses so registered with each on the BBC website and all 3 votes will be for @chrisfroome. Whatever the outcome, salbutamol didn’t enhance his performance above non-asthmatic riders. He is amazing and deserves to be SPOTY

Awesomeness from BotRadar:

I think all pro riders should go on strike and not race in protest against the silly test. That would get the UCI to sit up and think how can we test and not falsley acuse riders of doping. Even the riders who believe they are clean may actually be falling fowl of some daft test for something which confers no real world advantage.

Everyone has got there kickers in a twist over doping. Doping is bad but taking asthma medication is not bad if you have asthma. This is really one of those things if you step back you wonder what all the fuss is about. If you dont agree you have not stepped back

Turkey shoot ;)

People want heroes, don't they, and cycling mythology breeds this.

Who knows, in 50 years time people will be posting grainy black and white photos of Froome zigzagging up the Pordoi with a roughly-hewn spare tubular wrapped round his shoulders whilst sipping from a battered zinc Tramadol flask

Is it because they think they're winning?
