road.cc live blog: Breaking news as we get it and reactions to Chris Froome's failed drugs test.....
 

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.

Its a first to see the news on the BBC and silence on here. I think his title defences may have just gone west...

The miniscule presence of Clenbuterol didnt stop the sanctions to Contador.

It will be interesting if Froome is treated differently !

Meanwhile, why spend the time designing Union Flag shoes, but get the flag wrong?

Road.cc, it's not a failed drug test but an 'adverse analytical finding' - I think the nuance in this case is important as we all know how this is being reported in the wider press. I'm not saying that there aren't significant questions to answer but those of us who care about cycling as a sport would probably like it be accurately reported.

 

Incidentally Paddy Power can go fuck themselves. A grubby little company profitting off of others misery - no surprise they jumped on this.
