- GMC QC alleges Freeman ‘lied at every stage’
- ‘There were dopers in the past within these organisations’
The former Team Sky and British Cycling doctor Richard Freeman was working with “sleepers” in the organisations, who had previously used banned drugs, when buying testosterone to boost the performance of an unnamed rider, his medical tribunal has heard.
Summing up the General Medical Council’s case, Simon Jackson QC said Freeman had “lied at every stage” about ordering 30 sachets of Testogel in 2011 – and then had tried to cover up his “web of deceit” by setting up the former head coach Shane Sutton as “the fall guy”.
