[Correspondence] Free to breathe hard in the Tour de France

In the Vuelta a España in September, 2017, a urine sample from the British cyclist Chris Froome returned an adverse analytical finding, a concentration of salbutamol higher than 1000 ng/mL, the highest concentration by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). The case lasted several months, and just 2 days before the 2018 Tour de France, the case was resolved by the world governing body of cycling, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), which considered Froome to be innocent and free to compete in the race.
