Sutton: ‘I don’t know what was in the package’

by CyclingTips

The contents of the mysterious medical package sent to Bradley Wiggins via British Cycling are apparently unknown to the former technical director of British Cycling, Shane Sutton.


Sutton worked with Team Sky as an advisor, helping Wiggins win the Tour de France in 2012.

“I can’t elaborate on that because I’ve not had a discussion with the person who sent the package,” said Sutton. “I don’t know what was in the package. There’s an ongoing investigation and it would be unfair for me to comment. This was something that happened years ago. If someone had asked what was in the package there and then, they would have opened it up, obviously.”

He acknowledged he had been questioned by UK Anti-Doping which is running an investigation into the incident. “I have had a chat with UK Anti-Doping. But we need to let it run its course and publish the findings. From a clean cycling perspective Dave Brailsford has been a real enforcer of it but let’s let the truth come out and move on.

“I’ve worked with Bradley Wiggins and from my point of view there has been no wrongdoing. This is a guy that can win from 4km on the track to three weeks on the road. This guy is special.”
