Alexandre Vinokourov has called for CADF to conduct an investigation into how their report detailing allegations that two of their riders had met with banned doctor Michele Ferrari was leaked to the Danish press, adding leaks of this nature are damaging for riders, teams, and cycling as a whole.

The 24-page report, compiled by the Cycling Anti-Doping Federation (CADF), claimed that Danish rider Jakob Fuglsang had been training with the disgraced doping doctor.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
