It does seem a bit odd to me that they would throw Sutton into the equation, someone with a relatively (within the cycling world) high public profile and prone to speaking his mind.....wouldn't it have been a safer bet to just say it was for some random backroom staff member, or even a relative of a random backroom staff member and then hide behind the whole medical confidentiality thing.....So Sutton denies it, this could be fun
