How things work today in the Sky playbook could be quite simple....samhocking said:Armstrong's doping was 20 years ago in a totally different anti-doping climate, half of it when EPO couldn't even be detected and TUE system was definitely broken when it came to allowing teams toi cover up intra-muscular injections with intra-articular injuries being faked for TUE sign-off or if they didn't even bother with that, backdating as a TUE for creams after the AAF like Armstrong. Perhaps you need to move on lol and get upto speed with how things work today, based on what Lappartient said! No matter, the point is UCI will have to investigate themselves in order to investigate Wiggins because they authorised the TUEs for intra-muscular use. Maybe in 20 years time other riders will say what happened at that time in Sky with Wiggins beyond his TUEs, but until then, if you want to assume some kind of Armstrong-like long-game investigation by Lappartient and CADF, he's simply cheap talking his own short-term politics, much like technical fraud. At this moment in time any investigation would have to be a legal matter based on WADA rules using evidence.
Sky- What did Armstrong do wrong ?
Anonymous: He forgot to apply for a TUE for a substance he could get pipped for.
Sky: Gotcha- apply for TUE on time and we won't get busted...
Will be interesting to see what the next BS merchants learn from this Fiasco.
PS: While we all focus on Sky Valverde must be having a right laugh.
