Former Team Sky rider Michael Barry has spoken about the use of medications at the British-registered WorldTour team in the light of recent revelations relating to therapeutic use exemption certificates and the movement of a 'mystery package' to France.

The 41-year-old Canadian rode with Team Sky from 2010 to 2012, before leaving the team after admitting to doping during his time at Lance Armstrong's US Postal squad between 2002 and 2006. Barry said he stopped doping when he left Postal in 2006.
