Sadly I have made the decision to close this blog and also my twitter account. This is due to the torrents of abuse I have received in recent months from people via twitter and email.
I would like to say thank you to the many people who supported me, in particular thanks to @dimspace @inrng @festinagirl.
It is important to continue questioning the goings on in the cycling world. Although we may think that the sport is attempting to solve its problems they are wrong. This year highlights that there is so much more work to do and some many fighting against positive changes. Governance and doping are still the main two problems in the sport and sadly I cannot see a time when this will not be the case.
I look forward to reading Richard Moore’s new book on Team Sky. I hope it will examine in-depth the team and the wider failings of British Cycling. I doubt it will cover the topics that I would really like to hear more about. Such as the facilitation of @Chris_Boardman’s use of doping products in the build up to his World hour record attempt, why is Shane Sutton really still at British Cycling? & what real involvement did Dave Brailsford and Fran Millar have in David Millar’s doping programme.
I am off to find my ‘inner chimp’.
