Tom Dumoulin: If I was Chris Froome I wouldn't be at Tirreno-Adriatico

Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb) has reiterated his belief that Chris Froome should not be racing while the Team Sky rider's salbutamol case rumbles on. The pair, who are both currently racing Tirreno-Adriatico, are targeting the Giro d'Italia in May, with Dumoulin hoping to win back-to-back titles. Froome's participation in the Italian Grand Tour could well rest on his anti-doping case, which began when he returned a result for over twice the legal amount of salbutamol in a drug test at the Vuelta a España last autumn.
