Team Sky statement

Team Sky notes that Jonathan Tiernan-Locke has been charged with a violation of the UCI anti-doping rules.

We have been informed that he intends to defend himself against that charge.

Jonathan Tiernan-Locke will not ride for Team Sky or take part in any team activities – including training camps and all team duties – until a decision is made in this disciplinary hearing process.

We understand that the violation was highlighted by an anomaly in his Biological Passport, in a reading taken before he signed for this team.

There are no doubts about his approach or performance in Team Sky. This is a team that trains, races and wins clean.

At this stage, we will add no further detail until this initial disciplinary process is concluded.
