UK Anti-Doping accuses British Cycling of compromising Jiffy bag investigation

“Contact by British Cycling with some members of staff at British Cycling prior to informing Ukad could have potentially compromised our investigation” writes Oliver Brown for UK Anti-Doping sent a letter to British Cycling last autumn accusing cycling’s national governing body of “compromising” its investigation into the infamous Jiffy bag sent to Team Sky and Bradley Wiggins at the 2011 Criterium du Dauphine.”Despite being aware of allegations in relation to the 2011 package, British Cycling were slow to inform Ukad of these,” Sapstead wrote in the letter.This, Sapstead said, meant the allegations had already reached a number of individuals before Ukad was informed, and thus able to act.In the Ukad letter, which it sent at the conclusion of its year-long investigation last November, Ukad chief executive Nicole Sapstead told British Cycling chief executive Julie Harrington that her organisation had been “slow to inform Ukad” of the allegations put to it.
