I'm going to pop my two cents in here because why not. I get that Sky might not have done anything wrong technically and that they only took advantage of every dubious option available to them, but it's all really disappointing isn't it. They fucked themselves by claiming from the outset that they would be clean, which everyone took to mean in that spirit not merely according to the rules.
When Wiggins won the Tour and then in the Olympics it was such a great moment. It's disingenuous to suggest that his reputation ought not to be tarnished. I'm gutted for him but he's a silly sausage. Everyone was asking the question, it was a central issue, and cycling needed to believe in the possibility of moving beyond doping. They even had that journo guy whose name escapes me to stay with the team so that they could demonstrate their approach. Did they tell him about the use of TUEs? I bet not.
I appreciate I'm not adding much to the conversation but it's a shitty outcome.
