Professional cycle sport's global governing body, the Union Cycliste Internationale, has said that it will consider making further changes to the controversial therapeutic use exemption (TUE) certificate system in the wake of the UK parliament’s Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee 'Combatting Doping in Sport' report.

The Committee's report published on Monday said that Team Sky had 'crossed an ethical line' by administering corticosteroid triamcinolone to Bradley Wiggins ahead of the 2011 and 2012 Tour de France and 2013 Giro d'Italia.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, 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, CyclingWeekly.com 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.
