Chris Froome should rule himself out of racing until an investigation into his “adverse” drugs test is complete, says French rival Romain Bardet.

Team Sky’s Froome had double the allowed level of legal asthma drug salbutamol in his urine after a test during September’s Vuelta a Espana.

The Briton, 32, has denied wrongdoing and he has not been suspended.

“I can’t really see how Froome can race as if nothing was going on,” Bardet, 27, told French sports daily L’Equipe.
