tuesBritish Cycling bosses have been called to a parliamentary hearing to explain the growing trend of therapeutic use exemptions in the sport.

Damian Collins, chairman of the culture, media and sport select committee, told the Times on Friday that the hearing will focus on grounds for granting the exemptions (TUEs) amid concerns about British star Bradley Wiggins’s controversial use of a powerful corticosteroid before three key races.

“As part of the inquiry into doping, the select committee wants to look at the ethics of the use of TUEs and the way this is policed by British Cycling,” Collins said. – Agence France-Presse
