Sutton urges Wiggins, Freeman to 'tell the truth'

Bradley Wiggins invested in tax avoidance scheme that used charity as a front - report

It is understood Team Sky are backing their under-fire boss Brailsford, yet Landis has also argued the DCMS report could spell the end for a team whose riders have won five of the past six Tours.

And yesterday, the team's former coach Shane Sutton called on Britain's first Tour de France victor Bradley Wiggins and former Team Sky doctor Richard Freeman to come forward and give a full explanation of how they used asthma drugs.

Team Sky issued a statement in response to Lappartient's comments.

A British parliamentary committee said in a doping investigation report, published on Monday, that Team Sky crossed an "ethical line" in 2012 by seeking a therapeutic use exemption for Wiggins to take a banned steroid "not to treat medical need but to improve his power to weight ratio".

Team Sky and Bradley Wiggins have both strongly denied that any drugs were used, or any TUEs granted, without a medical need.

Sutton, who gave evidence to the committee past year, was also asked about a treatment administered to Wiggins on the team bus after winning the 2011 Criterium du Dauphine.

"I am told by the doctor he needs a TUE for this event etcetera etcetera". "I just saw the article from a certain [outlet], it said, "You have to tell the truth.' Well, it seems that it was not the truth, if I correctly understand what is behind this". I would like them to do this, to see if there is some violation of anti-doping rules, ' Lappartient said, adding, 'They had at the time the TUE agreement but now we have the evidence that it seems to be organised'.

"I'm not sure we can have the decision before May's Giro d'Italia", Lappartient told the BBC.

But Froome, one of a handful of riders to remain with Sky since its inception in 2010, says he has witnessed no wrongdoing. I certainly have a very different picture to what's been painted in the headlines.

"I totally refute that", Sutton said. "Right now I'm here to race Tirreno and I'm focusing on that".

"I have never seen anything like that". That is absolute rubbish, I have seen that accusation, but no that is complete rubbish. "I really would like to know". I've been there for eight years, since day one.

"I can only speak from my own experiences in the team".

The DCMS select committee said it is "not in a position" to state what was in the medical package but added there is no "reliable evidence" to back up Team Sky's claim it contained a legal decongestant. "I wouldn't have stayed so long, I wouldn't have been in the team, I wouldn't still be in the team, if I didn't believe in the team and the people around me".

Sir Bradley Wiggins has strenuously denied the doping allegations put against him.

"Dave B [Brailsford] has brought all those people together and we've got a fantastic group of people".

Froome is still free to race while his case is ongoing, but Lappartient believes it would be awful for the sport if the Briton was to compete in this year's Tour de France with his case unresolved.
