Anti-doping laboratory used to test Tour de France samples suspended by WADA - Cycling Weekly
The Team Sky rider was allowed to take up to 40mg of the drug Prenisolone in tablet form a day. The newspaper cited Dr Gerard Guillaume as an expert who remarked that rules state that taking steroids by mouth is prohibited during competition and that if a cyclist displays a condition requiring such a treatment, he is clearly not fit to take part and that any request for a TUE must be considered by a group of experts. The French newspaper report revealed that the Kenyan-born British professional road racing cyclist received permission to use Prenisolone to treat a chill during this year's Tour de Romandie.
A Team Sky spokesman confirmed that Chris Froome had been suffering from a chest infection exacerbating his underlying asthma. The UCI has maintained that " usual procedure " was followed in the way.
The statement went on to say that the UCI would like to express its profound disappointment with the speculations that have been made suggesting its President could have any influence on the granting of therapeutic use exemptions.
Insinuating that Brian Cookson's son's employment with Team Sky could have something to do with the decision to grant the TUE is an unfounded allegation which will be dealt with seriously.
