The outgoing chairman of UK Anti-Doping David Kenworth has said he and his organisation will not give up its investigation as to what was in the package flown out to Bradley Wiggins at the 2011 Criterium du Dauphiné.
“There’s still no definite answer from anyone who was involved,” he told the BBC. “I still don’t know what was in there; I’m no nearer finding out than you are.
“People could remember a package that was delivered to France, they can remember who asked for it, they can remember the route it took, who delivered it, the times it arrived. The select committee has got expense sheets and travel documents.
“So everybody can remember this from five years ago, but no one can remember what was in the package. That strikes me as being extraordinary. It is very disappointing.”
When asked about Dave Brailsford’s explanation that the package contained Fluimucil, Kenworth said, “Well that’s what Dave Brailsford came out with at the hearing. But actually, if you recall, he didn’t say: ‘I know that’s what it was’. He said: ‘I have been told that’s what it was’.”
