Here, we have a fancy paper signed by some one, so nothing to see there. Nothing "troubling" with so many top athletes living around with rare diseases and competing or training with legal doping products
TUE's granted by UCI have declined from 239 in 2009 to 13 in 2015. Which can only means two things.
- Up to 2009, we had a population of near-zombie ridding in pro cycling.
- TUE's were used do cover up doping cases.
I'd favor the second hypothesis. And what UCI has done, others might still doing it.
TUEs are a disgrace. At the very least, sport people shouldn' be able to compete using them, and there sloud not be no retroactive case in any circonstance. At best, they should be eradicated.
