So you expect us to believe a rider with a chest infection not only manages to get out of bed, they manage to actually ride a bike, but not only that they manage to race their bike, in the 3rd week of a grand tour, on a hilly stage they attack in the finale and distance and/or beat all their GC rivals on a grand tour mountain top stage *and* then they go on to win the tour.
Where can I get such an infection?
Apart from the very good point you make regarding Froome being sick yet outperforming everyone, what about the strict liability rule of other drugs interacting with Salbutamol, that is, it's up to the athlete to ensure that any medicines/supplements don't interact and trigger a positive. I recall that Contador was found guilty on the strict liability rule for not knowing the supplements he took contained albuterol.
