Spain's Joseba Beloki is angry he will not be allowed to take asthma medication during the Tour de France.
Beloki is back after breaking his leg in last year's Tour de France
The drugs he has taken since childhood contain the steroid cortisone.
"With my background and the proof I have, the Spanish federation allows me to take it and the UCI (world cycling body) permits it," he said.
"Neither my team nor the French federation will allow me to put [it] on my health record. I risk testing positive during the race," he said.
Beloki, back after breaking his leg in last year's Tour, has finished on the Tour de France podium three times from 2000 to 2002.
