Trek-Segafredo and Fabian Cancellara confirm TUE's for bee sting treatment
Trek-Segafredo and Fabian Cancellara confirm that Cancellara received therapeutic use exemptions (TUE) for the treatment of severe allergic reactions to bee stings on August 17, 2011, and May 18, 2013.
The treatments were administered in respective urgent care centers where Cancellara was treated, and not by a team doctor.
These therapeutic use exemptions are currently being reported in the media without any context provided, damaging the image of both the athlete and the team.
Trek-Segafredo and Fabian Cancellara are disappointed with the leaks of Cancellara's medical records from the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) database, and the team and Cancellara want to stress that the correct procedures to find and document the treatment with the authorities were followed.
Additionally, Cancellara publicized his incidents on social media at that time - screenshots are attached in the link below - and the news was covered in the mainstream cycling media.
