I think he's answered quite a few salbutamol questions this past 8 months or so. It's weird asking him about it every day, I mean, its not like somethings changed. I'm also amazed at people wondering wether or not he still uses salbutamol or gets outraged seing him use it in competition. It's not like asthma is a communicable disease that will pass like the flu, he will be taking some form of medication the rest of his life probably. Journalists are basically goading him to anger just for effect and headlines at this point, which is their perogative, but its still stupid unless there are more facts to discuss.ontheroad said:Whilst Froome might be technically correct and within his rights, in that his current salbutomol usage is nobody else's business, surely he must see a certain arrogance in his reply to a journalists very fair question yesterday.
Given the cloud that remains over his continued participation in the sport, the least that he could have done was answer the question honestly and transparently. Some things never change with Team Sky, however. Prudhomme will be clinging onto the hope that the decision on his salbutomol case is made prior to the tour. I wouldn't bank on it at this stage.
