Former Team Sky coach Shane Sutton has said that he thinks it is time that Bradley Wiggins and former Team Sky medic Dr Richard Freeman came forward and give a full explanation of how they used asthma drugs.

Sutton gave an interview with Sky Sports News, broadcast on Tuesday evening in the wake of the publication of the UK parliament’s Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee ‘Combatting Doping in Sport’ report. The Committee's report concluded that Team Sky had 'crossed an ethical line' in its use of corticosteroid triamcinolone despite operating within anti-doping rules.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
