"According to The Times, Varnish’s legal team is considering further action in the wake of the report, which acknowledges that “good governance was lacking at BC Board level in relation to how it managed the culture and behaviours within the WCP". A draft version of the report leaked in March, however, was amended in the intervening period, including the claim that the board had sanitised an internal inquiry into Varnish’s allegations.

Passages critical of Team Sky manager Dave Brailsford, who was also British Cycling performance director until 2014, have also been removed, following a process of “Maxwellisation”, in which those named in the draft report were able to present dispute or counter its contents.

Former British Cycling coach Ken Matheson had provided evidence, and he told The Times that he was “quite appalled” by the final version of the report.

“I would say it is a whitewash,” Matheson said. “The whole purpose of this review was to get to the truth and I’m not sure we have. This is an organisation that has been sick for an awful long time. I feel I have totally wasted my time.”"
This seems to be not over yet - SDB's critical passages removed ... well, well. Who would have thought it. :rolleyes:


The honourable Damian Collins was on SkyNews today calling for Cookson's head, which mean he couldn't take selfies anymore.

"In light of the findings of the independent review, I do not believe that Brian Cookson should be re-elected as head of the UCI – he certainly shouldn't receive any support from UK Sport for his campaign," Collins said.

I think you may be massively overestimating Damien Collins's influence. No one in cycling knows who he is. Barely anyone in British politics know who he is. He's just a Tory backbencher who has the ear of three or four British journalists (not cycling ones)

"No one in cycling knows who he is", ugh? - maybe dans le continent, but just say Brailsford and Parliamentary Committee and people know. At least Cookson must tone down the bs before Sept 21.

I don't know anything about Damien Collins influence but he does seem to be getting enough publicity surrounding the stink of BC Cycing, Team Sky and Cookson to maybe turn public opinion. And that is good.

Big disagree on that. Bad call by you. The mainstream media are queuing up for the report, esp as the TdF is upcoming. What better story than blowing up SBW while CF is going FR up the Belles Filles LOL no innuendo intended

Lappartient talks "technical fraud"

http://www.bbc.com/sport/cycling/40663467
Brian Cookson's leadership of world cycling has been "poor", says the man challenging him for the International Cycling Union presidency.

French candidate David Lappartient told BBC Sport that Briton Cookson was "not informed" and "lacked a clear vision".

Cookson, who has been in office for the past four years, had hoped to be re-elected unopposed for a second term.

But his reputation has been dented by negative headlines about British Cycling, which he led for 17 years.

Cookson has strongly defended his record - though he has also been tainted by criticism of the country's leading pro-cycling operation, Team Sky.

The man who left British Cycling to take the helm at the UCI stressed he has been a "consensus-based president".

But, with the flagship Tour de France preparing for its finale this weekend, the race to be the sport's most powerful figure is now heating up.

...
Lappartient admits the UCI has made progress on tackling doping, promoting women's cycling, growing the sport in new territories and improving its status within the Olympics, with extra cycling events added to the 2020 Olympic programme in Tokyo.

But he believes these areas can still be improved, pledging in his manifesto to overhaul the race calendar, ban corticosteroids, and cap team budgets to prevent teams from dominating the sport.

Lappartient also wants to ramp up the fight against mechanical doping.

"Our sport has suffered a lot with the image of doping," he said.

"The UCI has done a great job for many years to have a better image... but regarding technological fraud, we know the industry is able to produce smaller motors, so we need to use X-rays, cameras, etc - this is something that appears in our sport.

"The UCI is doing some things but we need to be sure that we will use all the equipment and all the opportunities that we have to be sure that nobody will cheat with technological fraud. I hope and I think (the testing) is working, but I want to be sure that it's working in all the cases and I'm not completely sure."

So. Guess what's back? Yup, this. After last season's unexpectedly truncated run and its epic finale cliffhanger - will the wall of silence protecting Sky collapse? - what's new? Well, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport is now the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. Does that mean that the DCMS now becomes the double-DCMS, inviting rather obvious jokes about boobs? Sadly, no. According to Matt Slater on Twitter, they're staying as the DCMS, by making the 'Department' silent. Which of itself invites a joke about their Jiffy bag report. Today, they're banging on about FIFA but hopefully we'll get to find out if they intend to resurrect the cycling inquiry.

This is good news as I suspect UKAD was hoping this would all go away and their investigation would never conclude.

I may well drop Mr Collins a line or two. The silence over the PC and UKAD reports is unearthly.

Think UKAD are waiting for a whistleblower or for Freeman to get "well" :D They could also talk to Alan Farrell.

Well there was an election, so the committee dissolved. And now has reformed with a new name and some new members. Nothing to do with the summer recess.
