Idea that a VO2 Max test, now or years ago, will tell us if Froome is clean is frankly absurd. See here, for example:

Thanks for a very interesting article. While I agree with most of your points, I don't agree that VO2 max has no bearing on performance. (or the gentleman's point about Lemond) Lactate threshold is highly trainable, and it is not uncommon to see 30%, 40% or even 60% increases in an untrained athlete’s lactate threshold with training. In the cycling world a popular method of training is to train to increase lactate threshold. This is done by targeting intensity (as measured in watt output) at about 80-90% of LT. As the athletes LT rises, the intensity of training is raised so that the athlete continues to train at 80-90% of LT. This has been shown to increase the lactate threshold, and subsequently performance, considerably. But there is a ceiling and the ceiling is V02 max. It is pretty common to see an untrained athlete with an LT around 50% of their VO2 max. With trainin...
