Froome defends inhaler use as arndt wins third stage of Tour de France
Team Sky rider David Millar was banned for life for using a personal inhaler during the stage three win at the Tour de France.
A French court said the 31-year-old former two-time champion used an inhaler in the team time trial after he went into a “state of suspended animation”.
A statement read: “In order to ensure a safe and appropriate performance during a time trial, the team rider took a personal inhaler at the start of Stage 3, which he then applied directly to his face. The 더킹카지노team is satisfied that 더킹카지노no serious health risk was caused to the rider by the use of his personal inhaler during the course of Stage 3.”
A number of riders claimed Millar’s use of a personal inhaler was a case of team collusion in the Tour de France while they competed with Sky and Garmin.
“When it happens in this way it is very difficult to see who does what,” the statement read.
“Therefore, it must be treated as a team operation. But when riders like David Millar and others use personal inhalers in such cases, and others in similar circumstances in general, they should be punished severely.
“We, the team have no doubt that they acted in order to help our team achieve maximum performance. All other details are to be worked out by the independent investigation, and the consequences that could result should it proceed.”
The statement did not disclose any further details of the case but revealed Team Sky’s legal department had been informed of a similar incident on stage four at the Tour.
Sky won the yellow jerse우리카지노y, the top stage and the overall win in each of the last three years in the Tour de France while Garmin and Sky have won the overall title in the last two years.

Doping in cycling is rife as the sport’s governing body, the UCI, banned the use of performance-enhancing drugs in 2016, but the ban, which could still be enforced, is currently enforced by some teams, such as Astana, Garmin and Sky.
Last year the UCI ruled out banning the use of anabolic steroids by Team Sky riders, leaving them to rely more on the UCI Anti-Doping Cod
