Wendy Houvenaghel fastest rider in BC and left out of the team and a sick rider put in instead.

5 women who have put the boot into BC so far. Must be bitter that they were not good enough!!! :rolleyes:

Brailsford not a pleasant man it would appear.

Yeah I just got a snippet of this on the radio. Another top rider supporting everything Varnish, Cooke and Pooley have said.

The snippets of what she said:

''culture of fear''

''medals at any cost ethos''

''no choice''

''if you rocked the boat you were out...no ifs or buts''


In other news, British Swimming female paralympians coming out in a similar vein...culture of bullying. Investigation to be launched. Is there going to be an avalanche of speaking out about bullying culture in other British sports?

Has this cycling genius been muted by Sky or is it a self imposed media ban?

Have barely seen or heard from him since the season began.

It was the best strategy to put a muzzle on Sir Dave as he was drowning in his own management speak. Word has it that rival team managers are none too pleased with him for offering up stories about others teams. Brailsford hasn't become Bruyneel level toxic but he is well on the way.

Where has this cycling genius disappeared to, almost a week into the Giro now and we haven't heard from him in a couple of months. Has he been muted or is he being ushered out the door?

Dave was on Eurosport this morning at the Giro, talking about how great Team Sky are riding, very confident, they can't wait for the Blockhaus ...

He's back! Out of hiding and telling us the bleeding obvious ... :(
"All round he's an interesting character on and off the bike." translated as "I don't get him at all, so he's out if he does n't perform".

He,s certainly a changed man - no more arrogance and Mr Cocky in his interviews - looks like he has no confidence.

I was expecting a repeat of "Froome's run" stage - complain and whine to all. Maybe he's been told that "the clocks ticking" for him.

Yep

Previously he laid claim to being whiter than white, the Angel Gabriel.

I suspect now his reputation is tarnished, as a fallen angel he is not afforded the same preferential treatment amongst grand tour organisers.

In all of the brouhaha over the Phelps report, this was the most fascinating thing I read:
During the late 2000s and until 2014 the report noted that the relationship between the performance directors of British Cycling and UK Sport had “deteriorated to the point of being nonexistent” because of two reviews carried out by Deloitte which were critical of the conflicts of interest between Team Sky and British Cycling, and that as a result Brailsford did not meet UK Sport for several years. That surely should have been a red light.

They only need one intern, who just posts a link on BikeRadar and lets them do what they do...

Brailsford: I'm going nowhere


Which means normally that management are looking for a replacement :D When the Murdochs come out and say they're 100% behind SDB, then it's only a matter of time.

(SDB's fate might well be decided after the decision today on Fox's takeover of Sky in the UK see - http://www.bbc.com/news/business-40434381 )
