Thanks Classicomano. Looks like the bus is waiting for Froome to be thrown under.
Yep

So far whatever happens Brailsfraud comes out not exactly smelling of roses but not entirely drowning in manure either

Each time the gullible fanboys bless em keep the faith gotta respect that combo of naivety and stamina

But really Brailsfraud is not as clever as he thinks as a political operator he's slime-tastic

Imagine having that as an epitaph

Legacy of ashes

Froome is a rather forgettable character though. I don't think anyone would miss him. I actually don't blame Brailsford dropping him, he'd better off with going with another rider, he has plenty to choose from who could all win 28 GTs with the Sky formula.

Egan Bernal, under 60 Kg climber, already Colombia ITT champion with Sky and today sprinting uphill with Quintana and Uran while dropping his fellow "altitude native" captain Henao. It's much easier too than with Froome, Bernal is talented and he's only 21.

you will be missing him actually. once froome gets banned and quits, there will be no one to hate with passion. the sense of following cycling is getting lost. ;)

So its ok to liberally use the term 'fanboy' to belittle anyone with any hint of sympathy for Froome/Sky, but to say someone 'hates' (i.e. the logical polar opposite of 'fanboyism') is not the done thing?

Seems somewhat unfair...
 
Re: Re:

This is beyond naive. There's an entire thread on salbutamol and you don't think anyone uses it as doping?

Okay, it's not blood doping or EPO, but it is doping when used in a certain way which, judging by the amount found in Froome's sample, indicates he used it in an illegal way.[/quote]

Hang on. You're holding up the fact that there's a thread on here devoted to Salbutamol as proof that it's being used as a doping product?

A thread by the way which was only started on the back of Froome's AAF.

I mean, maybe it is, I think it probably is fwiw. But how the existence of a thread on an internet forum proves this I have no idea :confused:[/quote]

No, but the content of the thread could help you form your opinion.

Honestly the bit about being able to teset below threshold on very high oral doses with legal masking agents looks plausible, and there's a lot of other good stuff in there, even though it's almost all speculative[/quote]

Yeah I get that, it's a great thread which I've followed avidly and learnt a great deal towards forming an opinion.

But it's just that, an opinion.

As informative as the thread is, it proves nothing. Even less so the mere existence of a thread. Which was the point of my post .[/quote]

the point might have been perhaps that a thread about plain flour being a PED would have lasted a couple of posts before being closed...so the fact that there's an active and ongoing thread probably means means it got some legs......the proposition from Parker was that nobody was using salbutomol for doping...when...they evidently are...and wada ban it....and...there are plenty of studies showing that it is a PED when taken in high does i.e. orally[/quote]

The thread grew legs because it's directly linked to an AAF against a certain rider who happens to attract quite a lot of interest around these parts

If so then yes I missed it

The Hitch said:
100% right.

Don't know what angle you are trying to pull that yiy are saying something true for once (I'm assuming jv said something bad about froome hence becomes the enemy) but I hope this experience will change you for the better
I tend to be centerist on most issues. I don't posture on any issue. I tend work on facts not opinion. In general I am on the side of most cyclists whom I don't feel owe me anything. I've been watching cycling since the 80s. I have a good idea of what a proper doping scandal is. And I have seen enough not to need to seek out another.

If Froome had tested positive for a 'proper' drug I wouldn't defend him. But he hasn't. When I first heard the news I thought 'salbutamol, is that it?'

For the record:

I don't think he or any other cyclist are using salbutamol as a doping product. Just as I don't think people build houses out of Lego. It's possible (James May did it), but it's stupid.
I think he may very well have taken too many puffs, Maybe deliberately in reaction to a genuine attack or desperately trying to tackle a problem that should have been dealt with by a TUE. Or maybe inadvertently by negligence or by swallowing or by faulty equipment.
Even if he is completely innocent, I don't think he will be able to prove it. And will be banned for 6-9 months
He will ride the Giro due the length of times these things take. He even get to ride the Tour.
He will keep these results.
Many, most even, on this forum had determined whether he was guilty or innocent before he had even taken the test.

Now unlike you I start everything from a position of 'I don't know' and build up from there. And always start from the point of view that humans are good people. You should try it. It will change you for the better (in the real meaning, not the 'I'm better than you, be like me' meaning)

And always remember the old adage that what can be stated without evidence (which is the baulk of the Clinic) can be rejected without evidence
And starting from the position that you don't know, back in 2009, when sky was announced, where has what happened over the last decade led you to? Do you still not know?

Ps i dont think that believing that all humans are good people is rational. Certainly if you held that position for every successful in the 90s and 2000s you would have been wrong pretty much 100%of the time. Surely you should have learnt from that

Well you clearly haven't read it, that thread has very little to do with Salbutamol for performance enhancement.
 
Re: Re:

There were a couple, though they didn't get much action:

viewtopic.php?f=20&t=21530&p=1356274&hilit=salbutamol+study#p1356274

viewtopic.php?f=20&t=11565&p=398609&hilit=salbutamol#p398609

Also, five threads devoted to asthma, generating a total of about 140 posts.

A better question to ask might be, though, is how many Clinic threads dedicated to clenbuterol were there prior to Contador's positive? Zero.

It often takes an AAF of a high profile rider before a drug gets much attention. Prior to Froome, there was only Petacchi, and that case preceded the Clinic. And in other forums that were active earlier, I don't recall any discussion of homologous blood transfusion prior to Tyler's positive. Indeed, I'm not sure that AD authorities realized prior to that that riders were switching from EPO, following the implementation of a test for that, to transfusions. As we all know, dopers are always ahead of the testers.

The majority of posts deal with other issues, true, but I wouldn't say it has "very little" to do with PE. There have been some discussions of that.

The first post by Merckx Index has links to 15 studies under the "Performance enhancing effects of salbutamol" subheading. As a start.

For someone then to come along and claim he doesn't believe any pro cyclist uses salbutamol as a PED is to show one's refusal to accept what others know about the drug's effects on human physiology.

There was also a good amount of discussion around the Ulissi AAF for Salbutamol as well, which touched on performance enhancement.

I already said, fwiw, that I believe it's being used for PE.

I’ve said a million times, I love Froome, I think he’s the funniest & most ridiculous cyclist I’ve ever witnessed. I’m actuslly shocked he has lasted as long pretending to be clean. I do miss his zig zagging and crashing but I’m sure it will be back soon after his ban for Salbutamol.

It's funny to see this question come up for the thousandth time--as if the same question has not been asked about every doper who got popped, ever. The answer, of course, is that riders dope regularly and get away with it regularly. This isn't the first or only time he abused Salbutamol, it's just potentially the first time he got the dose wrong enough to get busted and/or the first time that fact was leaked.

logic from walsh...that's brilliant...it's as though Armstrong doping, being tested and never being caught, despite knowing he'd be tested, never happened...and was never written about by....eh...Walsh...first class

still, he has a job to do....throw up some red herrings for the believers....froome will still need a constituency when he gets back from his ban....

our hapless hero...on antibiotics, kidney malfunction and a bad asthma attack....all on the day he puts time into his rivals on a tough stage...just imagine what a fit and healthy Froome could do.... :D
