Bradley Wiggins doctor pulls out of anti-doping select hearing due to illness
February 28, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
The latest and potentially conclusive meeting of the Department of Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) anti-doping select committee takes place on Wednesday afternoon at the Palace of Westminster when the details of the UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) investigation into Team Sky are expected to be revealed. Appearing at the meeting will be Nicole Sapstead, Chief Executive of UKAD, and former British Cycling women's road manager Simon Cope, who delivered the now infamous Jiffy bag to Dr Richard Freeman and Bradley Wiggins at the 2011 Critrium du Dauphin. The hearing, which is not under oath, was moved to March 1 to accommodate Cope who has been at a Team Wiggins training camp. Freeman had been scheduled to appear in front of the committee but the Press Association have reported that the doctor emailed thecommittee's chairman Damian Collins MP on Tuesday stating that he was too ill to attend. Freeman was set to face questions over the delivery and need for the package during the 2011 Dauphine, as well as the administration ofFluimucil given to Bradley Wiggins at the end of the race. According to the Guardian a spokesperson for the committee said that Freeman may have the options of supplying written testimony or face the committee at a later date. Freeman no longer works for Team Sky but has remained in his position at British Cycling.ADVERTISEMENT Julian Knight MP, part of the committee took to Twitter once news of Freeman's decision not to attend was made public. "News to me. I trust if true Dr Freeman recovers very soon and is then able to appear before us to answer important questions." The Jiffy-gate affair, as some have dubbed it, has now been running since last autumn, and, allied to questions over Team Sky's use of TUEs during Wiggins' Grand Tour schedules, prompted a UKAD investigation into both Sky and British Cycling. During the last DCMS hearing in December, Team Sky principal Dave Brailsford informed the committee that team doctor Freeman had told him that the Jiffy bag delivered to Wiggins contained a decongestant. "It was Fluimucil," Brailsford said. Following that hearing, the committee, chaired by MP Damian Collins, requested that evidence was provided of this medication being administered to Wiggins.

Wiggins' 'struggle' at the Tour of Britain
September 06, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
After securing his fifth gold medal at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in August, Bradley Wiggins is back to road racing with his namesake Team Wiggins at the Tour of Britain. The Briton looked like he enjoyed his outing during stage 2 fromCarlisle to Kendal, posting a photo on Instagram of himself running up the day's final KOM over a climb called The Struggle. "Taking things very seriously at the top of the struggle, took my mind off being in a world of pain," Wiggins wrote on Instragram. The Stuggle was the final climb of the 195km stage, located at the 160.5km mark. At the head of the raceXandro Meurisse (Wanty - Groupe Gobert) won full points on the ascent from a breakaway sprint and Julien Vermote (Etixx-QuickStep) went on to win the stage, while Wiggins brought up the rear of the peloton finishing nearly 23 minutes behind in 119th place.ADVERTISEMENT Perhaps Wiggins was poking a little fun at compatriot Chris Froome (Team Sky), whowas forced to abandon his bike and run up Mont Ventoux towards the finish of stage 12 of the Tour de France after the stage turned to chaos in the final kilometre. Or perhaps Wiggins, a former Tour de France winner and once one of the top climbers in the world, found The Struggle to be just that - a struggle.
