One of the oldest excuses in the book.
I suffered from allergies throughout my career and I've realised, post career, that I was drastically hindered by allergies during the month of May.

Well, Froome's lawyer is the same who solved the Impey X file.

That excuse is even worse than Sara Errani's "I spilled my mum's cancer medication in my pasta"

Errai's excuse sounds like a bad, borderline xenophobic, joke about Italian athletes, I think it's pretty hard to top that one.

I can't believe he didn't have a TUE....Travis Tygart gives those away like candy on Halloween...

This doesn't set a good precedent, at all. If you can cute talk your way out of it, you escape punishment?? No notable Russian XC athletes failed their tests in the last two/three Olympics yet they are collectively banned from Korea simply for guilt by association...It's disturbing. Travis Tygart, USADA and WADA should be ashamed of themselves.

Seriously...I cannot believe they went for it. However, she was able to produce receipts etc.

Will we see athletes purposely doping their boy/girlfriends? Wouldn't be a bad idea as a backstop.

I think it's slowly becoming a thing like in gymnastics where elements are named after gymnasts who first performed them...

FTA:

Still, to prevent against a flood of similar such defenses, he said, the top sports court would surely require strong objective and scientific evidence to validate future accounts of cross-contamination by kiss.


so basically they let him off for his creativity but the next guy has to come up with his own outlandish story.

This is an example of how stringing his AAF case out works in Froome's favour. As time ticks by and with multiple lines of defence put forward the UCI's legal fees keep going up. And the financial pressure on the UCI to settle becomes greater


The funniest part of that story is Fury's excuse - "eating uncastrated boar" .......

Odd distinction to make. Why would someone castrate a boar? They're not race horses or family pets!

And how would that affect nandrolone levels ...

One of the funnier ones I've heard.
