CYCLING : CHRIS FROOME - - 4-TIME TOUR DE FRANCE CHAMPION - - FAILS DRUG TEST !



CYCLING : CHRIS FROOME - - 4-TIME TOUR DE FRANCE CHAMPION - - FAILS DRUG TEST !
Asthma, asthma.

Can surely put you in a hell lot of trouble.

Literally.

So says Chris Froome @ChrisFroome.

Cycling great, 4-Time Tour de France Champion @LeTour.

2017 Vuelta-Tour Winner - - the first since 1978, the only third man in cycling's history.

Now, all that - - his reputation, and future legacy - - all thinly hanging in the balance, in the brink of crumbling in tatters, as he failed a drug test due to his - - yes, you heard it right - - asthma.

Froome, the greatest cyclist ever born in British history, is asthmatic since childhood.

Froome usually uses asthma drug to manage his condition while on tour, he has announced.

Asthma drugs are permitted in professional cycling, but with restrictions.

However, Chris Froome went way above the permitted limits of his asthma drug, Salbutamol, during Spain's La Vuelta @LaVuelta in September, where he emerged the Champion.

Salbutamol, a very common asthma drug used thru inhaler, is a banned substance in sports due to its performance-enhancing effects on athletes.

Its permitted level of use, per World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) regulations is 1,000 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml).

Chris Froome reportedly had 2,000 ng/ml in his system - - twice the legal limits - - when cycling's world governing body, UCI (Union Cycliste Internatinale) had him tested in September, during the La Vuelta tour.

He is now in danger of being stripped of his La Vuelta title.

And, could face a possible lengthy ban in cycling.

Chris Froome made history this year, by clinching a rare Vuelta-Tour double.

Vuelta-Tour Double is winning both La Vuelta a Espana and Tour De France - - two of greatest cycling races on Earth - - in one, the same season.

He was being groomed to be Knighted, for this remarkable feat.

Suddenly, everything has changed, all could just crumple into dust.

It's a doomsday scenario, as BBC 5 @5LiveSport puts it.

For Chris Froome. For Team Sky. And for cycling, as a sport.

When people just thought they have seen a new hero born, after that nauseating meteoric fall from grace of Lance Amstrong - - possibly the greatest self-confessed drug cheat of all time - - now they squirm, with "oh no, not again!" kind of disgust.

Asthma, asthma.

Or is it, Chris?
