There is only 4 tests per stage.bambino said:For Vuelta or the stage? All samples of all riders in Vuelta would complete nonsense.thehog said:No. What it appears he asked for was the results of “all” samples for all riders in some vain hope to prove his result wasn’t abnormal.bambino said:And what on earth would they do with around 20 urine samples? Take to "independent" lab for analysis? That would be the king of all delay games with probably huge $-sign attached to it. Froome has soon spent his Giro appearance with the defence...Wiggo's Package said:Presumably Froome's team has had access to the results of his other Vuleta tests. That would allow Froome's team to compare his salbutamol level and the level of any other markers in his system from stage to stage. Which would in turn would allow his team to try and construct a scientific/medical defenceMerckx index said:I’m surprised that Froome’s team couldn’t get those Vuelta samples in the first place. They’re critical to almost any theory of how he exceeded the threshold, e.g., kidney problem, drug-drug interaction, dehydration. They would have to know those values in order to support their case. But maybe the information being withheld is not the values, but the details on how the samples were collected.
What L'Equipe apparently reported yesterday is 'Froome's lawyer has asked the UCI for all his Vuelta samples "with the aim of showing that the controls are not trustworthy given the way they are conducted". The LADS refused to release them.'
This is the fishing expedition I referred to above. Morgan wants access to Froome's clean samples to prove that while Uncle Brian was in charge of the UCI there was a high level conspiracy against his client. The Dawg and Morgan in the tinfoil hats now!
