Who knows? I could, like certain others who troll here, claim to have inside knowledge but the fact is none of us know nothing. Anyone claiming to know what's going to happen next is full of crap.

There's always more to tell, of course there is, whichever side you take in this, but it doesn't get told very often.
Yup...all we do know is that, in Wiggins and Froome you have the two most ridiculous GC careers in history (well of non-sanctioned riders :)), a doping positive in one case, TUEs in both cases (one with a dodgy UCI contact), and a doctor not afraid to dope riders and now banned..... we can do the math...as an american might say...

Anyone can make one and one equal eleven.

But the real issue is that even here, in the Clinic, nobody really cares about this anymore. Look at how little traction this news has gained here, let alone in the real world. The British are not like Americans, they don't do heroes, apart from Churchill and the Queen.
 
He dragged out the GMC inquiry. Which delayed UKAD. So, clearly, he dragged it out.
I'm not sure he dragged it out, after all GMC did have to drop the most serious charge and then it all restarted from scratch for a second time with a new panel and that took a long time to gather. His health episodes were diagnosed by GMC evaluation so, although he might have been fighting for more time, O'Rourke continually seemed to want the process more fluid and transparent imo. That delay had nothing to do with Freeman or O'Rourke, GMC simply went in heavy claiming Freeman's order was for a rider but then had to lower the burden of proof to basically it being an order Freeman believed or intended for a rider. They even announced to the press then, that it isn't the intention of the tribunal to find any riders, but would be passed back to UKAD. As far as we can tell UKAD have no riders, so...
