Froome denies breaking rules, says legacy not tainted

  |   Sports

Four-times Tour de France winner Chris Froome has denied breaking any rules after a urine test he gave during the Vuelta a Espana in September showed excessive levels of an asthma medication.

Froome, who became the first British rider to win the Vuelta, had double the allowed level of the legal asthma drug Salbutamol in his urine, Cycling's governing body, the UCI, said on Wednesday.

Team Sky rider Froome, 32, risks missing next year's Tour de France and could lose his Vuelta crown unless he can provide a satisfactory explanation for the failed test during the Spanish race.

"As it stands the UCI have asked me for more information regarding my use of Salbutamol, which is a very common medicine used in treating asthma.

"I have been only too happy to help the UCI fill in the blanks and give all that information up to try and get to the bottom of what has happened."
