UCI president calls for investigation into Team Sky

UCI president calls for investigation into Team Sky

The indictment is only one of several in the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) committee's devastating 52-page report, which also contains the allegation that Team Sky used drugs "to enhance the performance of riders, and not just to treat medical need".

Members of Parliament concluded that therapeutic use exemptions (TUEs) were used by Team Sky to take the corticosteroid triamcinolone, in an effort to prepare them for the 2012 Tour de France, won by Sir Bradley.

He went on to say that it would be "a disaster for the image of cycling" if four-time Tour De France victor Chris Froome rode in this year's race while his doping case was unresolved.

In a Tuesday interview with the BBC, Wiggins said he only used prescribed drugs for valid medical reasons. Outside of the event, you have to ask them. "I would like them to do this, to see if there is some violation of anti-doping rules", he said.

Sutton informed them that Dr Freeman had told him the May application for a TUE for triamcinolone had been approved and "that's why I thought everything was above board".

Sutton added: "He is a sufferer, I have seen him suffer and gasping for breath after effort, I saw what he was going though, I can not answer how often he used it". "If you are using substances to increase your performances I think this is exactly what is cheating", he said.

Sutton, though, said Wiggins and the former Team Sky medic Richard Freeman have questions to answer over a mystery Jiffy bag package delivered to the team at a race in 2011.

Thomas Partey delighted with new Atletico Madrid deal
Messi is the leading scorer in La Liga this season with 24 goals and is also the all-time top marksman in Spain's top flight. Ernesto Valverde has admitted that he has prepared for Barcelona's meeting with Atletico Madrid as though it's a major final.

However, Sutton said: "I understand he was treated on the bus, I thought it was public knowledge".

And clearly someone let Phil know his error as he later told viewers after an ad break: "Welcome back". "He has to take the decision he needs to take, and I see the pressure", Lappartient said. "Like I said, I'm really proud to be part of this team". "I don't know what the authorities will do about Team Sky", Landis said, "but they kicked me out and took my title for taking steroids [he tested positive for synthetic testosterone], so the same should happen to Wiggins". "I'd have had more rights if I'd murdered someone".

"To be honest, it's six-and-a-half years ago now, so I have no idea". I certainly have a very different picture to what's been painted in the headlines.

When asked about the specific 2012 allegation from the anonymous source, he added: "No".

Froome, meanwhile, has rubbished the select committee report. "It is not my experience within the team, that that is how the team operates".

PHILLIP Schofield has left This Morning viewers in stitches after mistakenly calling Sir Bradley Wiggins "Sir Bradley Walsh" during an intense interview.

"I have no recollection of training with that group, when they were all together". I wouldn't have stayed so long, I wouldn't have been in the team, I wouldn't still be in the team, if I didn't believe in the team and the people around me. In the meantime, the 32-year-old is free to compete, has been doing so and intends to ride May's Giro d'Italia and this summer's Tour de France.
