Oh absolutely - this is a massive grey area.42x16ss said:This is getting into a tricky field though. Would you support the entire Novo Nordisk team not being able to race as their diabetes meds allow them to race safely and is therefore performance enhancing? What about Dowsett and his haemophilia?
The entire topic of TUE's is a grey area. Each and every medication and condition is different, this is what makes it so tough to regulate.
So when it comes to TUEs, if the rules need to be tougher then maybe some people cant ride due to inherent conditions. So Dowsett is a Haemophiliac, but then how many others could suddenly be so (at the diagnosis of their doctor)? And then all of a sudden we have a peloton full of Haemophiliacs.
Much like a peloton full of asthmatics ...
