Wiggins has been under scrutiny for a number of months over his use of therapeutic use exemptions, allowing him to treat medical conditions with otherwise banned drugs, prior to the 2011 and 2012 Tours de France and the 2013 Giro d’Italia, and over the contents of a package delivered to Team Sky at the 2011 Critérium du Dauphiné.
