I would need more evidence than that to consider him doping with Terb, sorry.
My biggest takeaway from the victories of Wiggin, Froome, Thomas and now Yates is how effortlessly they won their grand tours. Froome has done a good job of acting the last few years, but they all seemed to have won without doing much suffering. Please don't give me bs about the great teams they were on, if you're climbing an HC mountain and you're on a bad day you will suffer.
True that. It's highly annoying seeing them winning HC-stages, dropping the rest of the field like stones, without giving the impression of being devastated.
Tell me of these HC wins of Wiggins.

A 4 month ban for abanned substance.

No documentary proof of childhood asthma and of course you believe him.

:lol:

One born every minute.
He confirmed asthma since childhood with UCI.
He didn't produce evidence.
 
Yates TUE was already granted for asthma by UCI from what i've read about his case, it's just that the doctor failed to include terbutaline. ie he had a TUE for Salbutomol, but declared he had taken Terbutaline on his Paris Nice control form.

You are 100% correct - The doctor forgot to apply for a TUE while Yates listed the substance on his document control form.

And just to prove to everyone he is on the up ( an English expression i believe), he produced historical documents proving he is a long time asthmatic.

Cycling has always been a sport where the culture to dope is the norm. Show me where and how that has changed that it is now possible for a clean rider to win a 3 week long endurance race over riders who are doping to beat the band!

you seem confused, you are the one claiming things, its up to you to show proof....and your opinion doesn't count for proof
 
You simply can't get the TUE without medical evidence of having asthma. Without that attached to your TUE Application it will simply be rejected. Now, we can argue his statement is untrue that he's not had asthma since childhood or we can argue his team doctor and GP/Consultant faked lung function tests and that he's had it since childhood and we can argue UCI ignored everything or accepted everything using some evidence, but if that's all true, then 'everyone' in the peloton can and would do the same, if such fakery easily gains them an advantage in Grand Tours so still doesn't explain Yate's success over them anyway.

Be nice if the 3 'Brits' paid taxes to queen and country.

Do Andorrans and Monegasques dope?

their tax business has nothing to do with you
I'd have thought it may concern an uber fleg waving Brit like yourself.
Nobody has a problem with Sagan living in Monaco not paying his tax, but he's not British lol! Maybe Slovakians are up in arms about him?

You know the guy that’s won the most for these Anglo Saxons that are on the rise is African
who does he ride for in the olympics?
yes the mighty Great Britain and Northern Ireland , but he is African, he was born in Africa....class him Anglo Saxon all you want but he isn't[/quote]


I am not sure where do you come from, since it most probably can influence your point of view. I will try to explain you basic principles concerning nationality and citizenship. In US it is based on soil (place of birth), but in Europe (with exception of Ireland if I remember correctly) on blood (nationality of parents). So the answer is here in wikipedia: "Froome, whose parents are British, was born in Kenya and grew up there and in South Africa." Simple as that.

Every man jack (and woman it seems) doing sports nowadays has frickin' asthma. The bs with EIA is rampant. Can we blame it on global PM pollution maybe? :rolleyes:

How familiar would you say Simon Yates was with all things asthma-related in this vid from 2014? He calls an inhaler a "puffer thing" and then drops it

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRnInyTd8b8&feature=player_embedded#t=283

On balance, I'd say his "asthma" is caused by being a pro cyclist with access to a PED (given a doctor's note). I agree with you that TUE abuse is a trick available to all the top riders and it's probably just a #marginalgain

Oh if only it was opinion Richard. Sadly it is long proven that nearly all GT winners are dopers, so if one wanted to be considered clean one must do the proving, well obviously not to guys like you, by the way i have a great pyramid scheme you and Samhocking would love, it has a unionjack logo too :lol:

How does a rider prove they have asthma. Oh yeah the team doctor paid for the team they ride for. Who accpets they have asthma, oh yeah the UCI, that organisation that hates doping and cheating!

Please Sam leave it out mate!

I would love to see Yates success explained how he, the cleanest of clean (oops please ignore ban and asthma), beat the dopers over 3 weeks.......probably wanted it more, trained harder, marginal gains, more focus, yada yada yada

Funny that a guy who is Kenyan would ride for another country. Kind of cheating when you think about it. He rides for a country where he stands to gian a better advantage. Yep that is cheating.

some numbers here: In less than twenty years, the percentage of asthmatics has increased by more than 40% in adolescents and in France, every ten minutes is born an asthmatic future. Each year, there are 2,000 deaths related to asthma. Review of details of a disease in full progress in France but also around the world.
Swiss specialists estimate that 8% of the population of their country suffer from asthma, against only 2% 25 or 30 years ago;
In Germany, it is estimated that there are 4 million asthmatics;
In the whole of Western Europe, according to a Belgian institute, the Institute of Allergology UBC, the incidence of asthma has doubled in ten years;
In the United States, the number of asthmatics has increased by more than 60% since the early 1980s and the number of deaths from the disease has doubled to 5,000 per year;
There are approximately 3 million asthmatics in Japan, of which 7% have severe asthma and 30% have moderate asthma;
In Australia, 1 child in 10 (under 16 years old) is affected.
