Chris Froome is in full support of 24 hours of drug testing. The 2013 Tour de France champion is a strong critic of using PEDs in cycling & is ready to take up anything to clean up the sport.
Froome’s statements follow a derogatory report on doping & criticism by erstwhile Olympic road racing champ Nicole Cooke.
According to Cooke, the Brit rider was wrongly granted a TUE (Threapeutic Use Exemption) during Tour Romandie in 2014 where he came up with a great victory.
The Tour de France 2013 champion has not ever failed in any drug check in his career & confidently welcomed the new policy of 24 hours of drug testing in cycling sport. He tweeted recently saying- “If that could help in cleaning up this sport which I love so much, let us do it.”
The Sky rider was suffering from chest infection on which UCI granted him TUE last year.
Cooke has also criticized UCI chief Brian Cookson regarding the doping issue in cycling. According to her, the new UCI boss has failed to get a firm grip over TUE abuse & it has been legally permitting riders to take to banned substances citing medical conditions.
“I do not feel that it’s okay to take off Chris’ race & prize money retrospectively yet Cookson should come up with a clear message. Brian needs to seek apology from the other cyclists for failing the riders”, stated Cooke. (more…)
