Interesting to see that the champions of the "cyclisme a 2 vitesses" opted not to answer
This.
17 teams with no, or obscure responses.
Not only MM but not a single French team prepared to give a number.

Still, much better to say nothing, or so I am led to believe.:rolleyes:

If they are all backdating them, they only need them if their rider has been controlled ;-)
good point.

Huh? Wasn't British Cycling supposed to be approving TUEs like a conveyor belt? :confused: Guess that was made up
i don't remember anyone claiming that, but I may have missed it of course.
In any case, let's not jump to conclusions as if this were hard data. It's not. It's just a bunch of answers to a journo's inquiry. Nothing more nothing less. Has UCI confirmed the validity of the answers?:rolleyes:
See also bobbins point above, which may apply more to Sky than to any other team.

didn't froome alone admit to more than 2 TUEs?
I think he said he had 2 in total - TdR and 1 in training(?), I assume in the same season but not sure if it was specified. Best ask TheHog - he's read The Climb from cover to cover so knows best.

Sky have lied before. Why should we trust anything they say?
You say they've lied.....that doesn't mean they've lied.

Besides....this thread isn't about Sky....but I understand that it is your obsession

Well, they've had the existence of one leaked so if they lied here they could very easily be caught out. I guess that didnt occur to you ...
Ball, not man.

Did anyone question sky on their previous lies?

They might have had 2 TUEs or 200. No one knows and I certainly don't trust anything coming from Sky.

It's UCI (call Zorzoli) who approve TUE's for WT teams and anyone else in their international registered testing pool, and the other Brits gets their TUE's from UK Anti-doping. British Cycling handing out TUE's must be back in the days before the Domsday Book.

Thats another £1 for my pension then.

Questionning Sky on their "previous lies" is irrelevant here. They answered with a precise answer, which is more than a number of the MPCC teams did ...

And? Does that prove they are not lying?

You seem to struggle to understand my point, which is that if no one questioned sky on their previous lies, why should they be worried about it now?

You say they lied.....no offence, but that doesn't really count for much

No more than it proves they are lying.

Why should they be worried? Well, the fact is they were asked a question about a subject (TUEs) where they have already had information leaked to the press. They would be monumentally stupid to even think about lying when answering this question for fear that something could be leaked again. Pretty straight forward in my view.

So, another interesting topic forced down the Sky toilet by the obsessed few.
This place has been made into the dead end of doping debate.
Sad to say so.

Anyway, to bring it back to the real issues, what i find really interesting about those responses is the number of MPCC teams who declined to answer (in many different ways). And as I mentioned earlier the OPQS answer is most peculiar.
