My dear british Missie. Please inform yourself before writing any useless shite. Asthma medicine is widely used in cycling and some other sports exactly for doping. And if you don´t mind it would be just great to leave your personal insults aside.

Its getting to be a joke. Does every British cyclist have asthma these days? Even if he is a genuine asthmatic, the use of these drug is quite possible giving him an unnatural advantage. I don't suffer from asthma but unfortunately nature has not equipped my with the necessary physical characteristics to compete at top level cycling so why shouldn't I also have access to the type of drugs to overcome my physical limitations. If Froome does suffer from debilitating bouts of asthma than I am afraid that is the way it is. Like every other wanabee athlete he will just have to learn to live within any natural limitations.

Nope. During the current test match series the English results have come back negative twice. No positives yet.

Harry makes a fair point.

If asthmatics need to roid up because they are too sick compete, perhaps there should be an "Illness" category in the Paralympics for them.

Does anybody here wonder if Formula will be as upset. angry and vocal about Froome the Bent Spoke as he was about Lance for the last 10 years?

Wonder no longer: He's a Little Englander first and foremost.

Bicycling must be the most boring sport the world has ever seen.

If you Thickos cared to read up about what he was caught with, you will realise it was like taking a Pea Shooter to a Gun Fight...

...Or chewing on Ginger before a Drug Fuelled, 48 Hour Bukkake session streamed Live on Sky Sports 69..

It wouldn't have helped him a jot.

He's guilty as fuck, just like the rest of them. The doping technology is way ahead of the technology required to detect it.

Even steroid derivatives are widely available and completely legal to buy OTC, although they are illegal if found in your blood. Good thing you can get them out so quickly.

Vuelta can be used as a masking agent, that is the simple reason why it is banned, but i am afraid the damage has allready done to Froome's image as a cleanskin.

It is the image that this sport has in recent times, it sadly seems it that the quietest whisper now means your name is under a cloud, and now that you are guilty untill you are proven innocent.

Even in the racing world there are drugs that are banned, not as many for blokes on bikes, but there are some.

In the UK, all drugs are banned - and all have to be out of a horse's system around 28 days before racing. In the US, the laws are different with drugs such as Lasix being permitted.

Get over it Geeky. I have told you for years that Fromme isn´t clean. In your small sized brain and your british nationalism it is hard to accept that british do the same as americans or others. Sometimes it is difficult to accept reality.

Froome is much worse than Lance. Froome actually failed a drug test. Lance never did.

Maybe, maybe not Lost Soul. Lance never had a positive test but very strong acusations. What is abosolutely ridiculous is to defend Fromme at this point
