I suspect it only just covered the tip of an iceberg... More from the athletes concerned would have been good... Although Mr Miller didn't pull many punches when describing the enhancements experienced from the drugs included in the TUE's...

Line of the evening had to be: If an athlete is performing at 95% its ok to drug them up to get 100% - pfft...

Lost over 40 mins today .. Said he was tired and exhausted but has no regrets .. It was an amazing stage .. Sky set a blistering pace up the Colle delle Finestre and Froome attacked on the slopes with 80km to go and was out on his own extending his lead to the finish .. got to be one of the greatest rides of recent times. He won the stage by over three minutes and leads the race by 40 secs . He also took the king of the mountains jersey too. He was 3.22 down at the beginning of the day !!

Amazing day’s racing .. two mins highlights video on link below

It was a phenomenal ride by Froome and the best I've ever seen him or anyone do in a long time. After yates struggled yesterday I almost had a small back bet on Froome but opted for the lay on Yates instead thinking Dumoulin still looked strong enough to hold his advantage over Froome.

The only downside to this is the allegations he's going to face in the wake of such a performance especially with the current investigation and many believing he should not have even been allowed to ride the Giro

Not surprising really, hard to believe cycling 200mls would be the best sport for all these alleged asthmatics.

If you need medicine of any kind, even an aspirin, you can't ride. Survival of the fittest. End of allegations and grey areas at a stroke. Might thin out the paracyclists though which could be a problem :?

Chris Froome unable to compete in the TDF this year, Team Sky appealing, price 3.00~6.00 as a result

I think its a poor move on the part of the organizers to do this at such a late date when nothing has changed since, hopefully, common sense at AFS will overturn this and he will ride

Timing is surely a bit suspect...

That said if 80% of team sky need asthma drugs to compete there is something highly suspicious going on (even if it is within rules)... Think all the teams are at it...

A friend just pointed out that Froomes adverse finding was exactly twice the level allowed - not 86% or 124% exactly 100% more - sounds like they tripped up over the dosage one day....
