Cookson wants “full disclosure” on Team Sky’s mystery medical package

UCI president Brian Cookson says that he wants to see “full disclosure” next week about the contents of a mysterious medical package delivered to Team Sky’s doctor in 2011

David Brailsford is due to appear in front of a parliamentary select committee on December 19, where Cookson hopes that the Team Sky boss will be fully transparent about the contents of the package.

“I would hope that there is full disclosure to the select committee,” he told The Times. “I am surprised that one particular package has been singled out and I don’t understand why that should be, unless there is someone who has leaked this presumably has some sort of reason to suspect that there is something in it that they would rather not go public."

“I’m not surprised that packages are taken and delivered to teams from time to time, whether pedals, shoes, medical products, I’m sure that’s happening all the time with all the teams because they are always on the road.”

The existence of the package was revealed in a Daily Mail article in October, shortly after computer hackers published details of Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs) granted to Bradley Wiggins for drugs to treat grass and pollen allergies ahead of the Tour de France in 2011 and 2012, and the Giro d’Italia in 2013.

Sources within British Cycling say that the package did not contain the corticosteroid triamcinolone, banned due to its performance enhancing capabilities, but which Wiggins was permitted to use on medical grounds under those TUEs, the first of which was issued two and half weeks after he had won the 2011 Dauphiné.
