She was cut some slack. For some people excuses will be accepted. For others it appears no excuse is acceptable.
Armitstead did not dispute the second two faults, but successfully appealed to Cas over the first missed test, which happened at a team hotel in Sweden.
She undertook in-competition testing the following day, as leader of the UCI Women Road World Cup.
"Cas ruled the Ukad doping control officer had not followed required procedures nor made reasonable attempts to locate Armitstead," the statement added.
"Cas also ruled that there was no negligence on Armitstead's part and that she had followed procedures according to the guidelines."
