Occam’s razor people... most likely answer is he pushed the limits with the puffer he had a TUE for. Inrng has what seems to be a pretty reasonable take on it.

I see no reason to suggest Sky is “clean” but a bag of blood in final 1/4 of the Vuelta? Come on. The risk of getting a hit on jacked blood values is about as high as taking EPO (especially because these days they know exactly what a bag of blood looks like near the end of a grand tour).

Amateur as fuck. Especially considering it’s the Vuelta not LeTour.

I just don’t see Sky/Froome taking that particular risk.

Now it’s use as a masking agent for something newer / harder to test for / more sinister? Sure. We can go down that conspiracy rabbit hole.

If it is an effective masking agent for something new, then that would be more the Sky MO. Get a TUE for a masking agent. The near perfect crime.

Was there really any doubt that sky was flying close to the sun with their near-universal diagnosis of asthma, and all their other "marginal gains"? I'm just surprised that it took this long for one of their guys to TRULY get popped.
