Yes the TUE is meant to be applied for and approved beforehand not as a retroactive measure. That seems totally reasonable in light of how such an exemption could be abused as a way to avoid an analytical finding. In Martin's case they could have done so once they got back to cell service range and realized that Probenecid was prohibited. It's hard to understand how a team doesn't check any medications their riders take against that list.  Martin was racing WC DH and DH world champs in 2018 and plans to in 2019 so there is no doubt he was part of a WADA tested race last year. It's not a new thing for 2019 in terms of his requirements to stay on the right side of the WADA regulations.
