I was waiting for this to happen. He came out of relative nowhere to all the sudden be among the favorites for Kona then was nowhere to be found all day and took like 35th. The top of that sport is arguably worse than cycling. Less testing but also probably less professionalism given the self employed nature of pros randomly doing their own programs.
Edit: The guy who coaches Chartier is Mikal Iden, Gustav Iden’s older brother and a coach for the Norwegian Triathlon Federation. Aka the World Champ Gustav Iden, and very close relations to Kristian Blummenfelt and the Norwegian Method. With how data oriented and science driven these guys are, there’s no way Mikal wasn’t aware of the doping if not playing a big role in it. There could be a big scandal headed our way.
