When Team Sky Cycling was set up, it declared a zero tolerance for drug usage, they wanted to return some respect to the sport after years of drug abuses.

They employed athletes who could declare their allegance to a drug free future. Now this.

Even with the burden of proof, can we trust Team Sky? If he is proven innocent, then we can get behind Team Sky again, but until then he should be suspended

It seems that Former Sky cyclist Mick Rogers has failed a drugs tes too. Although the story I read didn't say when this happened.

 

I really hope this isn't the start of something.

He joined Sky after a brilliant season with a smaller team ... beating the big boys to win the Tour of Britain.

 

His first season with Sky has been a crashing disappointment.

 

If anything, Sky will emerge with its clean-cycling reputation intact.
