Cancellara and Cummings hacked TUE data released
Fabian Cancellara (Trek-Segafredo) and Stephen Cummings (Dimension Data) are the latest pro cyclists to have their Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE) released by the hacker group Fancy Bears.
For Cancellara, the alleged TUEs are for methylprednisolone in 2011 and one from 2013 for same drug as well as for prednisolone.
Like many of the athletes, Cummings’ TUE relates to the use of an anti-asthma drug, salbutamol, administered by inhaler. The certificate dates back to December 10 2008 and was for 12 months’ use. Cummings has only this single TUE published by Fancy Bears.
An alleged TUE for for Jakob Fulsang (Astana) has also surfaced in which it shows him receiving Kenacort during the Rio Olympics, but the veracity of the certificate was quickly challenged as the logo on the form is distorted, there is no date and name of the event is the mountain bike world championships.
