A report examining the culture of British Cycling since 2008 is set be released in March - and not next week - as individuals mentioned are being given the right to respond to avoid the possibility of legal challenges.

The UK Sport review - launched last April in the wake of Jess Varnish's sexism and bullying claims against Shane Sutton, which prompted the Australian to resign as technical director - has been collecting research ever since and has contacted around 200 people, with up to 60 asked for interviews.
