    And on....


    In a statement, a spokesperson for Team Sky said: We are confident that Chris will be riding the Tour as we know he has done nothing wrong.

    Unlike those similar claims of innocence in the past by Armstrong, Pantani, Virenque, Heras, Contador,... oh and, lest we forget, Wiggins.
    What, Brailsfords boys not clean, how could you you cynical fellow

    Just seen the Sky "jiffy bag" doctor give a BBC interview. Didn't believe a word he said. Conveniently ill enough to avoid giving evidence but still able to write a book, which happens to be published in time for the Tour de France, and no doubt will make him a fortune. Wouldn't trust him to prick my blisters!

    Tend to agree Liani.
    I bought in to clean sky.
    But
    They just dope in different ways.

    I thought Brailsford was a top bloke before all this came out. He's as guilty as the rest, possibly more so.

    Chris Froome's anti-doping case has been dropped by cycling's world governing body, the UCI.

    Very Strange!!!!!

    Ooh, I hadnt thought of that. Id assumed that because he beats loads of other blokes on bikes who are doped to the gills then he must be juiced too. Maybe hes innocent after all. What about Wiggins? Innocent? Well apart from the wretched Weller hair . . .

    I think we need an ultimate adjudicator who is an ex-Grand Tour winner, has the respect of the cycling world for his achievements allied to a reputation for integrity, independence and a willingness to express forthright views.

    I have heard of someone who fits the bill - from Austin, Texas?

    Or a Spanish steak muncher.

    CL alluded to team bending the rules in some way.
    I agree.
