INDURAIN WON'T BE PUNISHED FOR USING INHALER

The French Cycling Federation said it will not punish four-time Tour de France champ Miguel Indurain for a positive drug test.

Indurain tested positive in May for taking salbutamol - banned by the French federation but allowed by the governing body - during the Tour of Oise. Indurain used a product called Ventoline in a nasal inhaler to improve his respiration during the race, which he won.
