The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has told Team Sky to send their evidence to other organisations after the British team offered to provide them with details on Chris Froome’s impressive Tour de France performances.
Sky chief Dave Brailsford wrote to WADA offering to share their rider data with the organisation to demonstrate that Tour de France leader Froome is clean.
Sky have already shown their data to French newspaper L’Equipe, which could find no abnormalities in Froome’s performances.
“We encourage all those involved in sport to share relevant intelligence with those whose aim it is to promote fair and clean sport. We would always be receptive to information that will aid the fight against doping in sport,” said WADA media manager Ben Nichols. “It is not specifically in WADA’s mandate to accept specific team or individual requests, however, and we undertake at-event observation programs only if invited to do so by an International Federation.
