Freeman, man at centre of UKAD investigation into allegations of wrongdoing in cycling, says too unwell to attend
This can't be food. Looks like a cover up to me. For something so simple like a decongestant Sky/BC are going to extraordinary lengths to not talk.
What do you guys think?
Do you even cycle ?
That wasn't aimed at you, Fenix.....
Not 100% sure what he would have added that has not already been said many times and suspect if his version of events wasn't going to differ with what is already known. If he was I think it would come out in the UKAD report.
Be interesting to see what comes out tomorrow.
THIS IS KILLING THE FORUM
NO, NOT WCF, ALL OF THE REST OF YOU
?? I was asked to create a thread. News developed today of Freeman's withdrawal. Are we not to discuss it?
No, he just recycles.
It's not about "adding" but it's about the collection and collating of evidence. That is a very important part of parliament select committees.
Always getting personal. Perhaps discuss today's events on Freeman?
For the record, I do cycle, it's a very enjoyable sport.
As you've already had a Hat today you can have a special Hat for that, just to wear at weekends...
It's not the same stuff. Freeman (chicken wings) withdraw from the CMS beating in unusual circumstances. That is news. Why it discuss it? If you want to discuss racing, go to the face thread.
A thread about a bloke who may or may not have the flu or something. It's hardly vital is it ?
Conflict of interest.
Tomorrow we await more information. UKADs findings will be interesting, like Rich, I await their conclusions.
It is rather bizarre Freeman is a no-show though. Dumped it all onto the fallguy in Cope. Funny how these so called heros like Wiggins, Freeman and Brailsford let others take the fall.
I think you misunderstood your therapist when they encouraged you to "mass debate" to relieve tensions - I do not think they mean't you to troll post pro race - there is a website for you which begins with p and ends with hub - hope that helps.
The Dr may well be genuinely ill but it surely shouldn't have been this hard (or lengthy) to verify to the CMS the contents of a package containing medical supplies being transported across different European countries.
I hope everyone involved has their TUE in order.

It hasn't looked good from the beginning. On what should have been a relative quick response to a fairly simple situation has just mounted and mounted into a bigger and bigger story mainly because no one would really take ownership. I honestly feel for Cope. He shouldn't have to be the person defending what occurred at a CMS hearing. Regardless of what he knows, kudos to him for not taking the easy option like Freeman.
Whether Wiggins doped or now secondary to how utterly spineless he has become. Weak and sneaky comes to mind. I hope he gets the balls to admit what he did, doubtful though.
Wiggins 5 olympic gold medals, Tour de France winner, World champion many times over. Weak and sneaky doesn't quite fit here does it. Weak and sneaky however may be the appropriate adjectives to fit to a cowardly troll poster.
Still, at least WCF had the decency to put "alleged" into the topic title.
For the record, yes I agree it is a poor choice of timing to get sick on Dr Freeman's part.
True, Wiggins always fell ill just before the Tour and one Giro so he could be injected with kenacort and Freeman coincidentally falls ill the day before the CMS hearing to not provide evidence.
Completely normal in the world of Sky, British Cycling and Unicorns (no offense to unicorns intended).
Got to feel for British Cycling as they have to pacify Sutton whilst not giving Varnish the ammunition.
You were asked to create a thread on it ?
This is as big a scandal as TUE's?
[*]Who asked you to "Create a thread"?
[*]Why were the other threads not deemed acceptable to discuss Freeman's non-appearance in?
[*]Did the closure of a number of other threads on this self same topic not make you wonder if creating another one might not be the right thing to do?
[*]How many other threads and posts from you have been driven by someone else telling you to post?
