MPs believe wiggo used corticosteroids to enhance performance
It would seem that they have overstepped the mark. Crossed an ethical line is highly subjective. They acknowledge he had TUEs for using it during competition and that he was allowed to use it outside of competition. They go so far as to say he has not broken any rules or laws.

If I was Wiggans I would be considering my legal options............

Wiggins transcript

Love this bit, asks about his book and the no mention of needles and being ill and Sir Brad dodges it completely.

Do you understand why there is such suspicion? You don't make any reference in your book to injections. You don't make any reference to being ill. It all adds up to a cloud of suspicion. Do you understand why people now have doubts?

"I understand the way this whole thing has played out over the last 18 months, it's been a long old process. I have not been able to speak until this point because we have had a legal investigation going on with UK Anti-Doping (Ukad). I didn't want to jeopardise that, because I was fighting for my life. I have got a malicious allegation made by an anonymous source to start with, and I have got to now somehow feed my way through.

"I acted as a witness to the Ukad investigation, that was all I was told I was. This one, the report, I have not heard anything since this thing started, and at the 11th hour last week I was asked if I would like to comment on it. I was asked five questions, none of the questions were the current allegations that have been made. One and a half of the answers were published in the report.

"The first time I am aware of being accused of anything was today. At least I now know what I am being accused of, because the last 18 months has all been dilly-dallying about, innuendo, no-one has actually said - for legal reasons, because they can't because it's libellous, because now we have got to the stage where they have used parliamentary privilege to make it legal, being able to say it without repercussions - and now they are of the opinion that this is what we were doing.

"So I have got no comeback on this, this is now taken as fact. I have now got to prove that this is wrong."

Great stuff and well deserved. Very close in first few stages.

Edit. This is the first time ever that Ireland has had four current cyclists who have won grand tour stages.

From his Indo column, Nico's daily Giro routine:

Eight hours' sleep.

Two hours' transfer in the bus. Six hours and five minutes on the bike.

Four thousand metres of climbing.

Average speed: 39kph.

Maximum speed: 89kph.

Average heart rate: 140bpm. Highest heart rate: 174bpm.

Normalised power for the day: 337 watts.

I burned 6,326 calories today and consumed five coffees; two bowls of porridge, a sprinkle of fruit and nuts; two slices of toast; one poached egg; one slice of ham; a sprinkle of cheese; a scrape of jam, a scoop of peanut butter, six half-litre bottles, five or six mini wraps (3 cream cheese and ham /2 banana and jam), two energy bars and a couple of healthy pancakes.

By the way, that's before dinner.
