So LADS reject Froome's defense but he isn't banned? Is this normal, UCI/LADS rejecting a defense or in other words "ruling" someone guilty, but leaving it to another institution to pass the sentence?
Rules state that he should've been handed an "acceptance of consequences" from Lads. Basically he was found guilty by LADS. If Froome does not accept it, which seems to be the situation, the case is sent to the Tribunal which will decide if he is indeed guilty and what the sanction will be.
Seems silly to me that he has been found guilty by an official board yet can continue to race until the CAS decision.

This is typical of how things are done.

Do you have an example of a similar situation? Before LADS existed, the national federation of a cyclist would make a decision (ban/no ban) and then there was an opportunity to appeal to TAS/CAS. In the meantime, the national fed's decision would stand.

I bet DB has already moved on to the next project.

Does he have any frenchies that can win the Tour anytime soon?

That might give the team some "air".

He did "promise" a french winner, before Froome sat too steadily on the crown.

They can't be focusing the team and its effforts around Froome now.

Even DB - the father of marginal hipocrisy knows he can't squeeze anymore out a that tree.

Froome's all by himself, however this ends.

I don't blame Froome for trying to stay in the game as long as he can.
Looking at history; jumping to confessions early on, wont give you a job/income within cycling anytime sooner.
As long as there is hypothetical chance of him walking, he has to bet on that as well.
Withdrawing voluntarily might make him a martyr with his fan base. But does anyone remember/respect a top guilty martyr?

UCI may be compelled by todays news to suspend Froome. But i think they might offer SKY to do it themselves first.

edit/ addition:
Question is, can DB morally suspend Froome with all the water that's gone under the bridge -without poising himself for public exposure (which he seems to do anything to avoid atm) adding huge backlash prolonging the whole SKYfail saga?

Why do criminals get so much protection by the rules? Not only in sports, but in real life as well. It sickens me deeply.
again, lol
Do you ever add anything of substance? All your comments seem to be nothing more than a 12yo popping off.
Lol, the clinic isn’t interested in substance, it’s all about shits and giggles
