Riders from across the peloton have backed Sir Dave Brailsford's pledge to make Team Sky's future Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs) public in an attempt to provide more transparency over the use of banned substances for medical purposes and said other teams should follow suit.

Brailsford broke his silence on Monday to defend Sky's use of TUEs, including steroids used by Sir Bradley Wiggins to treat asthma and allergies before three Grand Tours. He reiterated his stance that Sky is "100 per cent a clean operation."
