Bradley Wiggins has said the Dr Richard Freeman case "stinks to high heaven", and that although he doesn't believe the order of the banned Testogel was for a rider, that a further investigation is necessary to uncover exactly what happened in order to remove the "cloud hanging over" the whole scandal.

"The whole think stinks to high heaven. It's been ten years now but it wants looking into further. Yes he's been found guilty and it falls on his head but who else's head does it fall on? Now, can we look into it a bit further and ask 'what exactly happened? Someone must know?'" Wiggins said on his Eurosport podcast.

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.
