The Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service hearings surrounding the behaviour of Dr Richard Freeman during the time a shipment of 30 banned Testogel sachets were delivered to the British Cycling and Team Sky headquarters in Manchester continued on Thursday without Freeman present.

The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
