Lappartient calls for Team Sky investigation, team will 'welcome any review'

Lappartient calls for Team Sky investigation, team will 'welcome any review'”

UCI President David Lappartient wants to have the Cycling Anti-Doping Foundation, the UCI's independent testing and adjudication body, investigate Team Sky in the wake of the publication of the report summarising the findings of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee on combating doping in sport.

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.

The four-time Tour de France victor said: "I'm proud to be part of the team".

Wiggins said this week that he only used prescribed drugs for valid medical reasons and when asked if he categorically denied cheating, added: "A hundred per cent".

"I am told by the doctor he needs a TUE for this event et cetera".

The Australian, however, maintains others still have questions to answer.

Cohn's resignation came after he lost a fight over Trump's plans for hefty steel and aluminum import tariffs. April WTI crude dropped $1.71, or 2.7%, to trade at $60.89 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

"He is a sufferer, I have seen him suffer and gasping for breath after effort, I saw what he was going through, I can not answer how often he used it". We can see in this report that it seems to be a little bit different, ' said Lappartient.

Team Sky are also in the midst of challenging a failed drug test by Chris Froome. "This goes back to 12 months ago, when I was interviewed, that is the statement I made, that is what the doctor told me".

Wiggins was permitted TUEs for the corticosteroid triamcinolone - which is used to treat allergies and respiratory issues - before the 2011 and 2012 Tours, and the 2013 Giro d'Italia.

But Froome said: "There's a process for me to follow and a process for me to demonstrate that I've not done anything wrong, and that's exactly what I plan to do". "Like I said, I'm really proud to be part of this team".

"I know what training camps I was on with Brad, and for me that is a total lie and (is from) someone that very much, I would say, has an axe to grind with Team Sky", he said.

"I can only speak from my own experiences in the team", he told reporters before the Tirreno-Adriatico stage race in Italy, which starts on Wednesday.

"I don't think that "gaming the system" is commonplace among MPCC teams". I can not account for answers that have been attached to different questions.

I don't see why I shouldn't race - Froome What was in the "jiffy bag"?

Thomas, speaking to BBC Sport Wales, added: "I haven't [taken a TUE], but if I had, it's not breaking the rules. It is not my experience within the team, that that is how the team operates".

Asked if he agreed with the MPs that Team Sky had "crossed the ethical line", Lappartient replied: "It's in the report".

"Dave B [Brailsford] has brought all those people together and we've got a fantastic group of people". I can't control what people are going to think but for some people, whatever you do it is not going to be enough. 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.

Dave Brailsford, the chief of Team Sky and a key figure at British Cycling, the national governing body for cycling in the United Kingdom, had hailed how his team were doing things "the right way" - a welcome message in a sport damaged so badly by a litany of doping scandals, not least the Lance Armstrong saga.
