I'm not very concerned about the Sky allegations, it's pro-cycling after all.

I'm more interested in Heiko Salzwedel and British Cycling. I've always been a bit uneasy about GB becoming the new East Germany.

Becoming or having become?

The media are complicit in this of course

Hearing was set to receive evidence from former Olympic champion Nicole Cooke


Shame Sutton spat out the dummy. I'd have loved to hear what she has to say about him.

Seems weak. Sutton has already denied he asked for the patches, although it's also obviously to his advantage that Freeman is found not to have doped any athletes.

The BBC reported that Freeman’s lawyer, Mary O’Rourke, said her client had been prescribed a skiing holiday by his doctor and wouldn’t be able to attend the tribunal if it were extended in to the New Year.

I'm seeing my Doc on Friday...I think I'll ask her to prescribe a skiing holiday too!!.

The whole trial is a farcical now. I dont see any meaningful outcome happening at all.

.....She also listed a number of allegations concerning Sutton, including:

That he received drugs in a McDonalds toilet in Edinburgh.
That he had confessed to Freeman that he had used amphetamines while he was a rider.
That former Olympic champion Nicole Cooke and her dad provided a five-page statement on Sutton's "bullying, dishonesty and other shady behaviour…."
That Freeman blocked Sutton's phone number but Sutton used his partner's phone to call and verbally abuse the medic.
