Vicenzo Nibali Disappointed in Froome’s Positive

Froome won the Vuelta September 10, 2017 finishing 2min 15sec clear of second placed Vicenzo Nibali, who was far from celebratory in mood on Wednesday.

“It’s not a great day for cycling and it’s not a great day for him,” said the Italian climber, who like Froome has won all three major cycling tours. Nibali refused to be drawn further before an official ruling.

“But if this positive test is confirmed it will not feel as if I climbed onto the highest step of the podium to be declared champion in Madrid,” said the 2014 Tour de France winner.
