    Why didn't you people bump this thread when Olympic champ Asbel Kiprop got himself in hot soup? I didn't give the dope test people enough cash. He says, I have no idea what they put in my sample when I was in the john he says. It's perfectly normal for the testers to tell you their coming so you can make them 'tea' he says.


    Anyway I reckon the Froome thing might not actually

    The issue I am trying to bring up is why such an objectively blatant breach of doping protocols went unnoticed here, when a seemingly lesser incident gets attention.

    Froome will always rightly be tainted by this.

    WADA’s contradictions

    The dearth of information about why Froome was cleared is deeply frustrating. Given that this story has been huge news for months, and given that he is the defending Tour de France champion aiming for a record-equalling fifth title, why wasn’t the decision explained more fully?

    Or to put it another way, why wasn’t transparency given the prominence it deserves?

    WADA’s own communique offered a few additional details, but was also far from enlightening.

    WADA said that it had engaged in ‘thorough consultation with internal and independent external experts,’ in coming to its conclusion, which was that ‘the sample result was not inconsistent with the ingestion of inhaled Salbutamol within the permitted maximum dose.’

    Explaining that conclusion, it mentioned a number of factors specific to this case. These were defined as ‘a significant increase in dose, over a short period prior to the doping control, in connection with a documented illness; as well as, demonstrated within-subject variability in the excretion of Salbutamol.’

    WADA also said that it recognised that ‘athletes may exceed the decision limit concentration (of 1200 ng of Salbutamol per ml of urine) without exceeding the maximum inhaled dose.’

    However, the press release also included a jarring contradiction. Early on it said that urine levels of Salbutamol in excess of the decision limit of 1200 ng/mL would be “presumed not to be an intended therapeutic use of the substance and will be considered as an AAF [Adverse Analytical Finding] unless the athlete proves, through a controlled pharmacokinetic study (CPKS), that the abnormal result was the consequence of the use of the therapeutic dose (by inhalation) up to the maximum dose indicated above.” [italics our emphasis]

    Simply put, a CPKS would require the athlete to try to replicate the circumstances of the test, then to inhale a legal amount of Salbutamol to try to show that an elevated urine level would occur.

    That test has been done in the past with athletes who have been deemed to be over the limit for Salbutamol, including Ulissi. His CPKS was unable to replicate his test levels, and he was given a nine month sanction.

    However, although WADA specifically mentioned in its communique that the CPKS is the route used to try to prove innocence, it then said that this requirement was dropped for Froome.

    “In Mr. Froome’s case, WADA accepts that a CPKS would not have been practicable as it would not have been possible to adequately recreate the unique circumstances that preceded the 7 September doping control (e.g. illness, use of medication, chronic use of Salbutamol at varying doses over the course of weeks of high intensity competition).”


    Its final conclusions were:

    – the sample result is not inconsistent with an ingestion of Salbutamol within the permitted maximum inhaled dose;

    – an adequate CPKS is not practicable; and

    – the sample may be considered not to be an AAF.

    And that was that.

    No details about how Froome was able to prove his innocence without a CPKS.

    No details as to why he was different to other athletes sanctioned in the past, including Ulissi and Petacchi.

    And no commitment to publishing the full reasoned decision, which would lay out the evidence presented and the specific reasons why Froome was cleared.

    Does it surprise anyone that a Pommy cyclist would be involved in a doping scandal? Their whole program suddenly became competitive in the lead up to London after being mediocre for a century, like they are in every sport.
