To kick off instead of the old Tour-eve ‘positive’ we have ASO trying to block the Froome-dog from racing.

Should get some publicity if nothing else.

I was reading about this over breakfast. As well as an open question about whether or not he should be allowed to race. A lot of comments split down the middle, however, those in favour of his racing were decrying the fact he’s innocent until proven guilty. I take issue with that. He returned two positive samples and is guilty - he must now prove his innocence. So, I feel that he ought not race. Ideally, Sky would have sidelined him and done everything possible to resolve ASAP - not draw out.
Or, a provisional suspension to give Sky incentive to expedite the resolution (can’t have their biggest star riding pine )

And then he’s cleared right now? Gimme a break

#4

Hahahahahahahahahahaha

ASO against UCI word, isnt it? Even though ASO “owns” le Tour, the UCI haven’t banned him. And seemingly won’t.

I look forward to the interview by Madame President Oprah Winfrey in 10 years time with Froome owning up to all this.

#6

I already gave pretty much zero fucks about pro cycling, this has just given me the slightest teeny tiny nudge to give no fucks at all.

#8

I see it as ASO kicking the ants’ nest and UCI getting their act together to take a decision. Would’ve been great to see the bot not racing, but I’ll focus my sensations elsewhere.

#9

if you don’t think this was settled with a suitcase of money than i feel bad for you son.

just a coincidence that, after being told it wouldn’t be resolved for the Tour, its miraculously closed 24 hours after the Tour threaten to block him?

#10

This has eliminated any possible sensations, bar Haus dog winning a stage.

#11

Suspect it it was all pre-arranged between ASO/UCI/SKI as a way to get a decision before the race.
UCI probably said this was the only possible decision before the race
I won’t be surprised if WADA re-open it post-Tour

#12

We need Brad to unleash his guilty conscience and bring down Froome with him. Would be glorious, 2012 will live forever!

#13

^ a transfer to a Vanuatu bank seems more likely than the old suitcase.

#14

proverbial suitcase fuuuuuu

basically the opposite of the suitcase of courage/sensations.

#15

Maybe, if it’s the case the one looking real bad out of this is ASO. That they waited that long is incomprehensible, unless they thought it wouldnt be resolved in time.

#16

I reckon I’d get secondary sensations from a Hausdog win, only cos Jamesy would be a pure ball of electric sensation that would be passed through the WWW to all of us.

#17

would be the most supreme sporting moment behind only Tom Boyd’s goal from the centre square in 2016 granny to seal the flag and bring glory to the west.

#18

see now you’ve lost me

#19

Kinda makes me glad my Sky cap goes under my helmet where you can’t see it.

#20

even the likes of you jonno could not be unmoved by that moment. just had to be there.
