UCI president calls for investigation into Team Sky

UCI president calls for investigation into Team Sky

But Wiggins said in an interview with the BBC that he only used prescribed drugs for valid medical reasons and when asked if he categorically denied cheating, added: "A hundred percent".

Bradley Wiggins claimed he is the victim of a "malicious" attempt to "smear" his reputation after denying he had ever cheated during his career.

"They were misleading people", the Irishman said.

The report - published on Monday - stated that Team Sky had "crossed an ethical line" with its use of corticosteroid triamcinolone, which was administered to Bradley Wiggins ahead of the 2011 and 2012 Tour de France and 2013 Giro d'Italia to treat allergies.

The report, by contrast, said he may have taken it nine times in four years.

"I don't know where that's come from", Wiggins said.

"This same source also states that Bradley Wiggins was using these drugs beyond the requirement for any TUE". "I am calling for him and the doc to come forward now and tell the truth". Outside of the event, you have to sit down and ask them. Brad and the doctor had the chance to come forward.

"When you have actually seen him suffer like I have and seen him gasping for breath at the end of a particular effort".

"If you are using substances to increase your performances, I think this is exactly what is cheating".

That conclusion was partly based on evidence from Sutton himself, who told the committee: "What Brad was doing was unethical, but not against the rules".

Court extends Karti's CBI custody by 3 days
This came a day after junior Chidambaram moved to the Supreme Court seeking the quashing of summons issued by the ED. During the yesterday's hearing, the CBI told the court that Karti was not cooperating in the probe.

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".

"There was a pressure to win medals and get results, and I think there was a mentality of winning at all costs", he said. The global cycling union (UCI) has vaguely reiterated its general concerns over the use of TUEs, while WADA chief Sir Craig Reedie told The Times that "the operation of the [TUE] system is down to individual organizations and it depends entirely on the expertise of medical experts to allow people with medical conditions to take part in sport".

"I refute that 100 per cent". "What you have to remember is that Brad and I worked in isolation, when the source says this happened". "I really would like to know. I'd have more rights if I'd murdered someone".

"I've been there for eight years, since day one, when the team started". I can not account for answers that have been attached to different questions.

Sutton, the ex-British Cycling technical director who resigned in 2016 following allegations of sexism and discrimination, told Sky Sports that both Sir Bradley and Team Sky "need to to explain it all to everybody". That is absolute rubbish, I have seen that accusation, but no that is complete rubbish. "It's not my experience within the team that that's how the team operates", he said.

There have been calls for Sir David Brailsford to resign from his role as Team Sky's principal following the report, but Froome backed the 54-year-old.

"I have no recollection of training with that group, when they were all together".

Chris Froome said he was proud to be part of Team Sky.

"I wouldn't be here if I didn't believe in the people around me".

A parliamentary select committee report this week concluded that Wiggins, and possible support riders, had taken performance-enhancing drugs to prepare for the Tour de France under the guise of legitimately treating a medical condition.
