Chris Froome refuses to support Dave Brailsford

Froome declines to add his name in support of Brailsford as the scandals involving the Team Sky and British Cycling continues to get worse

On Monday, a number of Team Sky riders took to Twitter to give their support to Brailsford, with the team planning to put out a joint statement of support.

However, according to British newspaper, The Telegraph, Froome declined to sign the statement, tweeting only a picture of himself and his son Kellan with a giraffe accompanied by the words: “Enjoying my last few days in South Africa”.

Meanwhile, team-mate Geraint Thomas, prompted 15 of his fellow riders to offer their support for Brailsford, said it was “annoying” that he and his team-mates had to stand and answer questions when Freeman and Wiggins “can swan around getting on with their lives”.

Dr. Freeman was supposed to give testimony to the British Parliament committee hearing but cited illness for his absence, while the committee said it did not plan to call Wiggins to testify, saying it is not focusing on individual athletes, but rather organisations in its inquiry.

There has also been allegations that a sigificant amount of steriod based TUE's have "gone missing" at British Cycling headquarters, raising questions whether British cyclists were using these whilst winning medals for British cycling on the track?

More unquestioned answers and more worrying questions of possible abuse of medical substances in order to gain a competitive advantage. Watch this space.
