Questions raised over British Cycling/Team Sky doctor Richard Freeman

by VeloClub

One of the frustrations UK Anti Doping faced in trying to determine what was in the infamous jiffy bag transported thousands of kilometres to Bradley Wiggins in 2011 was the refusal of the doctor concerned to give evidence. The Daily Mail has raised questions about Dr. Richard Freeman’s refusal, as well as other aspects remaining in the case.

Here’s an excerpt:

Before he resigned as the British Cycling doctor last month, Richard Freeman asked his employers if he could give an interview to the BBC about the success of the organisation under the guidance of Sir Dave Brailsford.

British Cycling suggested that if he was now well enough to speak to the BBC, he was well enough to speak to their human resources department about his failure to keep proper medical records – and could also speak to UK Anti-Doping about their investigation into Team Sky, British Cycling and a medical package delivered for Sir Bradley Wiggins.

Freeman responded by saying, on second thoughts, he was still too unwell to talk to anyone and quietly quit instead.
