    They left this part out – Now that the jerseys are framed on the wall, the checks have been cashed and all of our objectives have been met, “we are intent on ensuring that the integrity of our record keeping is never called into question again.” The most organized team (and national governing body) with the biggest budget gets away with old “the dog ate my homework” excuse. Same s__t, different day I guess. And they wonder why pro cycling’s “business model is broken”? Where is the British Travis Tygart?

    The “Old Boys Network” strikes again. We couldn’t have anything illegal sticking to Sir David or Sir Bradley could we. A disgrace from top to bottom.

    “We have always maintained that there was no wrongdoing and we have co-operated fully with UK Anti-Doping over the last year.
    – Clearly Team Sky must be commenting on and/or confusing a different investigation. There was zero cooperation from Team Sky, which lead to a dubious result from this UKAD investigation.

    “Since our inception as a new pro cycling team in 2010 we have continually strengthened our systems and processes so they best support our strong commitment to anti-doping.”
    – And there it is. The strength of Team Sky’s commitment to anti-doping is directly aligned to the systems and processes they have in place. Congratulations Team Sky, you haven proven your “strong” stance against doping with your systems and processes.

    When I first read this excerpt from the book “Faster” by Michael Hutchinson (an excellent book, I highly recommend it), I immediately thought UKAD’s investigation.

    ‘We’ve got a database of every single half-lap the guys have ridden as a team, every single delivery, in races or in training, since 2008,’ Hunt said (Dan Hunt, coach of GB men’s team pursuit squad) It’s vast, it’s macro’d, and we use it all the time, for feeding back to the riders, for selection…. High performance coaching in the modern era has an awful lot to do with managing and navigating around huge databases of information. It’s not a pen and pad any more.’

    Now, this investigation is not into the men’s pursuit squad, but I’d venture a guess that British Cycling / Sky are extremely good at record keeping.
    To claim that all records have been lost is highly dubious.

    They know exactly what was in the jiffy bag (tip of the iceberg, in my opinion) and far more, that the greater public and investigators have no clue about.

    And they’d like to keep it that way.
