UK Anti-Doping's case against former British Cycling and Team Sky doctor Richard Freeman has been paused, pending the outcome of his appeal against being struck off by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal.

Freeman was given the strongest possible sanction by the MPT, which ruled his fitness to practice medicine is impaired by his misconduct after he was found guilty of ordering banned testosterone 'knowing or believing' it was for performance enhancement.

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.
