I guess he didn't have the same connections with Zorzoli to get an emergency TUE for his bronchospasm.

Should have gotten the horse steroid TUE instead.
Being MPCC and not having a UCI family member in the team meant he couldn't get easy access to the horse steroids.

Cycling at two speeds? :mad:

He probably should have change citizenship as well.

Good grief.
Very much so..... I guess the antibiotics didn't cut it.

Needed something stronger! :rolleyes:

Ulissi had been suffering for two days from a bacterical faringitis and was racing with a sore throat and temperature. Antibiotics failed to provide a respite for the 24-year-old, who tried to honour the race as best as he could by finishing stage 17 to Vittorio Veneto, with the team doctor making the final decision.

Wow.



Lampre rider popped and it's a Sky thread.:D
You think its fair that some sick riders will test positive due to not having TUEs, while others can dope on horse steroids and get away with it?

The MPCC has nothing to do with Froome's TUE, any MPCC rider could recieve the same and continue riding.


That's all I'll say, lets not turn this into another Sky thread.
 
first of all, mpcc is just a joke. it doesn't mean anything

second of all, anyone who believes that amount of salbutamol will give you the boost he had on il giro, is well let's just say naive...same with floyd landis testosterone positive. ulissi went pedal to the metal. even uci said no.
hopefully this won't affect rui costa and papy :(

Aru is next.
nah i think uci decided ulissi is big enough for this edition
plus they don't have to ban him for 4 years just some months

always a pity to see them caught but never liked ulissi since he beat danilo on those stages in settimana or whatever that was...plus his accent.
 
WOW Lampre sucks :eek:

They have been crap for years and as soon as they decide to up the game a bit, one of their leaders is caught within a few months :eek:

Wouldn't surprise me if Costa also ended up being caught down the line, which would be hilarious as i think he is riding worse than he was last year at Movistar, yet at Movistar no will ever get caught.

I think Horner does his own thing and if he wasn't caught at last years Vuelta, he will never get caught.

Yet some players seem untouchable.

That Lampre hired Horner after seeing those blood values tells you everything you need to know about the team's ethics.

No they wouldn't. MPCC riders are withdrawn rather than accept a TUE for horse steroids.

No, they are not. Go and read the MPCC rules.


In fact, here you go.

4. Intra-articular corticosteroid injections have to be validated by the team doctor, who will prescribe eight days off-race.

5. In the event of collapsing cortisol levels, eight rest days are to be prescribed (waiting for normal blood tests results).

The only rules you could possibly be thinking of. Neither would have prevented Froome's TUE and continued racing.
