Chris Froome suggests WADA cleans up TUE's

Three-time winner of the Tour de France champion Chris Froome, suggests that  the authorities should review the application process for Therapeutic Use Exemptions.

Speaking on Friday at a Team Sky training camp in Monaco, Froome says that by simply having a conversation about the subject, there are question marks over whether the TUE system could be open to abuse.

Froome, who is aiming to win a fourth Tour this year, said, “The fact that we’re having that debate about authenticity means there’s a problem with the system. I think WADA need to tighten their regulations around TUEs, so they’re not something that we question, their legitimacy. It’s not good for sport in general The fact that we’re discussing the validity of results, that brings it back to the authorities, it is something they need to tighten up on so that there aren’t questions being asked anymore.”

The Team Sky rider, who has admitted to receiving TUEs twice during his career, rejected medical help during the last week of his 2015 Tour de France ride on Moral grounds.

However the Fancy Bears leak showed that Bradley Wiggins was taking medication for asthma that contained a steriod based sustance before the Tour de France.

Bradley Wiggins and Dave Brailsford came under fire for a suspicious package that was sent to him around the time of the 2011 Criterium du Dauphine.

According to the Daily Mail, Wiggins previously missed tests in 2005 and 2009, and under World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) rules, any athlete who misses three tests in 12 months can be banned for up to two years.

Is Froome distancing himself from Brailsford?

According to UK daily newspapers, Froome refused to reply if felt confident in Brailsford’s explanation.

“I don’t know any different,” he said. “We’ve all been told what was in the package. To be honest, all this stuff it doesn’t really … I’m a bike rider, I’m focused on everything else.”

When asked if he felt Brailsford would have credibility in addressing Sky’s detractors at the upcoming Tour de France “That’s not really for me to say,” he responded, switching focus back to his personal situation and his own credibility".

Will Brailsford Survive?

Brailsford is coming under more pressure to provide actual evidence regarding Wiggin's package.

So far Team Sky has supported him, however with Froome's apparent refusal to show support, it could add to that pressure. 

Wiggin's has since retired from professional cycling.
