Armitstead missed three drugs tests.

Now we have something / quite-a-lot to discuss and celebrate.

Is that British Cycling teams or British cycling teams?

I'm aware of him being part of the GB U23 team in 2004, and riding for GB in 2012 off the back of the same Endura wins that got him his Sky contract, but is there anything else?
Otherwise, I'm not aware of any BC involvment in the management of CC Étupes, Plowman Craven-Madison, Rapha Condor-Sharp, or Endura.
He didn't do any top level racing at all between mid-2005 and joining Plowman Craven in 2009 (glandular fever)

Professional sport is a murky business because there's a lot of money in it,by lottery funding and by sponsorship from big name equipment suppliers.
Big money,big prestige,big chances.
Did anyone think races are really won on "mineral water"?

JTL was sacked by Plowman Craven for unprofessional conduct. My son also rode for the team and I know why he was sacked but I won't go into it here (not drug related). Suffice to say that there was something odd about him.
