When did this become common knowledge about UKAD receiving this tip off about the package ? Who would be privy to that sort of info ? Are there any retrospective tests that can be done on blood/urine for triamcinolone assuming the samples are still around ?


The whistleblower gave this information to Lawton who could not publish it for legal reasons - My guess is the whistleblower gave this information to UKAD - Of course UKAD has to prove it was triamcinoline - A difficult case for UKAD.

Divorce rates are at a record high in the UK by the way, I think it's something like 60 - 70% don't make it past a 10 year sentence, I mean the 10 year mark. :)



42% per the most recent figures, and trending down. Lowest rates since the 70s.

Very interesting reading about the Wigg's improvement timeline. Didn't realise it was so dramatic, always thought it was more gradual.


he was an ordinary prologue and tt rider for his first decade


Yeah I somehow had the impression he was making gradual progress. Probably unwittingly brainwashed by the cycling press in the UK, the sycophantic coverage at the time was never-ending.


may have won a l'avenir prologue when he was about 23, won a four days of dunkirk tt or some $hit small race in inimitable parlance of Cav. may have beaten saul raisin on a stage in l'avenir. could not peel skin off custard for his first decade in the pros since Linda Macartney tv dinners. and they probably ate meat.
