    I went searching for an article. Things had been popping up in my Twitterfeed. Unfortunately the guy I follow comments, but doesn't quote sources. He is an ardent believer that Froome mechanically dopes. Fuck the Hypocrisy

    I consider him more entertainment than anything else. I do find it interesting in cycling, as with so many other sports, elite athletes get so many Therapeutic Use Exemptions.

    As one wag, tongue firmly planted in cheek, said when Maria Sharapova was busted for drug use--- "It is odd that so many elite athletes have such odd and complex health problems."

    And no, I don't think the US is immune. Lot's of rumors swirling around my late teen hero Alberto Salazar and his training camps.

    I don't keep up--- usually on read during the TdF. But have that to be an excellent site.
