Team Sky boss Sir Dave Brailsford has defended the decision to get special permission for Sir Bradley Wiggins to receive injections of a banned drug before three major races - insisting the team had done nothing wrong.Wiggins use of the powerful anti-inflammatory drug triamcinolone on the eve of the Tour de France in 2011 and 2012 and the Giro dItalia in 2013 was revealed when a group of Russian computer hackers starting leaking the medical data of dozens of top athletes almost a fortnight ago. Wiggins won the Tour in 2012.The 36-year-old British star applied, and was granted, three therapeutic use exemptions (TUEs) to take the drug to deal with a pollen allergy that aggravates his long-standing asthma condition.But triamcinolone has also been widely used as a doping agent by riders, including Lance Armstrong, and is believed to help athletes lose weight, fight fatigue and aid recovery.Wiggins TUEs, which were stolen from the World Anti-Doping Agencys computer servers by the so-called Fancy Bears international hack team, were approved by cyclings world governing body the UCI and there is no suggestion that he or the team have broken any rules.But that has not stopped both the rider and Team Sky facing a barrage of criticism from inside and outside the sport, particularly given the teams much-publicised zero tolerance attitude towards doping, and Wiggins own comments about drugs cheats and the use of needles in his autobiographies.Brailsford told the BBC: What were talking about here is Bradley having a need, the team doctor supporting that, an expert giving their opinion that this is the medicine that is required, and that then going to the authorities who say we agree with you, and heres the certificate that gives you the permission to use that medication.Ive got trust in (the TUE) process and the integrity of that process.Its not one person making that decision. Its not the rider or the team doctor, who is picking the medication. They have to seek permission to use it and they were granted permission.Critics have pointed out that Wiggins breakthrough performance as a road cyclist at the 2009 Tour, when he came third, was achieved using less powerful medication via an inhaler. That form of asthma therapy no longer requires a TUE as there is no evidence of wider performance enhancement.However, Brailsford added: With the information that I had at the time, five or six years ago, with the information that was presented to me, and the expert opinion and the whole integrity of the process, I would make that decision again.He also rejected any comparisons with former dopers.Certain dopers, who cheated with a cocktail of drugs, claim they used this and abused it for performance enhancement - thats not the the case here, said Brailsford, before adding that the team has only been granted 13 TUEs in their seven seasons of racing.When asked if the public can still believe what theyre seeing, Brailsford said: 100 per cent you can trust in Sky, absolutely 100 per cent. Its the very essence of why we created this team in the first place.However, he acknowledged: Certainly, going forward, there is a broader argument about should TUEs be made public, and were looking at it.

There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me. http://www.wholesalenikezoom.com/ .875,000, avoiding arbitration.

The opponent, Croatia and all its football might and will. As opposites do attract we are set for a corker of an opener. JOLIET, Ill. -- Based on history, the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship will produce pushing and shoving, ruined cars and a whole lot of yelling and finger-pointing.The third year of NASCARs elimination-style, 10-race dash for the series title begins Sunday with the 400-mile race at Chicagoland Speedway. Drivers, start your aggression.I just know for us, its kind of a one-way street, Kevin Harvick, the 2014 champion, said of his approach. You do what you have to do for your team, whatever that may be, and worry about the consequences later.In last years Chase opener at the 1.5-mile oval, Harvick shoved Jimmie Johnson after a contentious race. It was similar to Matt Kenseth and Brad Keselowski brawling in 2014 at Charlotte and Jeff Gordon and Keselowski exchanging blows at Texas.Last year there was bad blood between Joey Logano and Kenseth that ended with Loganos car rammed into the wall at Martinsville.This is a mental game, Logano said. It is all about what is up in your head.There have already been clashes over this championship race. Ryan Newmans faint Chase hopes were dashed when Tony Stewart intentionally wrecked him in last weekends final qualifying race at Richmond. Newman ripped Stewart, saying he was bipolar and should be retired the way he drives. The two were called to a meeting Friday with NASCAR executives.Theyre trying to make sure they dont have a scenario like what they had last year with Joey and Matt, Stewart said.That feud last year started at Kansas when Logano wrecked Kenseth. Then at Martinsville, with Kenseth out of the running to advance and nine laps down, he wrecked Logano to end his chances to move on.Kenseth was suspended two races, but Loganos season was over despite a dominating stretch when he won three straight Chase races.Kyle Busch, the 2015 champ, has led the most laps this season and is the top-seed in the 16-driver field. Hell also start Sundays race from the pole after Fridays qualifying was washed out.There will be three rounds of eliminations before four drivers are left to contend for the title at the finale on Nov. 20 at Homestead.The format has led to high tension and unpredictability since its 2014 debut. Jimmie Johnson, a six-time series champion, has yet to be in contention going into the final race.It is shocking we havent made it past the second round, he said.Johnson, the No. 8 seed, is the highest-rankedd Hendrick Motorsports driver with Joe Gibbs Racing and Toyota dominating the first 26 races.dddddddddddd Practice times at Chicagoland seemed to show the gap is still thereBusch is joined by JGR teammates Denny Hamlin, Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth in the Chase. And Martin Truex Jr., whose team is aligned with Gibbs, is considered a contender.Team Penske, led by No. 2 seed and 2012 champ Brad Keselowski, and Logano, are back in the Chase, too.No, we arent going to crash each other, Logano said of his teammate. If that is the answer you are looking for, it isnt what you are going to get. We would race each other hard. I dont think it will get dirty for no reason at all. I wouldnt want to do that to anybody. I want to win the right way.While NASCAR may wink at the arguments and rough racing, the sanctioning body has vowed to crack down on cheating in the garage. Penalties for cars that fail inspection could cost a driver the title.But many drivers are too focused on their own work.I got the email and I hit `delete because it didnt pertain to anything with driving the car, Harvick said. Really just trying to focus on what I need to do.?I think everybody else is really focused on their jobs as well.Here are some other things to watch at Chicagoland:STEWARTS FINALE: Retiring at the end of the season, Stewart will try to depart with his fourth title and first since 2011. Youre not going to win the championship in this first segment, but you can sure take yourself out of an opportunity to win it, he said.JOHNSON: He begins his quest for a record-tying seventh title at a track where hes never won and in a format hes yet to master. I guess its 10 years since my first championship, so theres only four years Ive missed, he said.?I dont think thats too bad of a stat.YOUNGINS: The Chase includes two rookies for the first time. Chris Buescher is seeded 13th and Chase Elliott 14th.THREE FINGERS: Others making Chase debuts include Kyle Larson, who had the fastest car in Saturdays practice, and Austin Dillon, who has the iconic No. 3 Chevrolet in the playoffs for the first time.BABY ALERT: Regan Smith, who is not in the Chase, returned to North Carolina with his wife in labor. Ty Dillon will replace him in the No 7 if he doesnt get back in time.
