Team Sky og British Cycling slap fra jiffy-gate uden de helt store juridiske konsekvenser - omend det gav nogle skrammer i lakken. Konklusionen var at man ikke kunne finde ud af noget som helst.
Og skrammerne i lakken er blevet lidt større med offentliggørelsen af dette brev fra UKAD til British Cycling.
Blandt de festlige højdepunkter er:
“Despite being aware of allegations in relation to the 2011 package, British Cycling were slow to inform Ukad of these."
“Contact by British Cycling with some members of staff at British Cycling prior to informing Ukad could have potentially compromised our investigation."
“Failure to inform Ukad at the time that individuals within British Cycling became aware of such suspicions or allegations meant that this story had already reached a number of individuals before Ukad was informed, and thus able to act. That only hindered our efforts.”
“We found no formal processes or procedures in place to record the purchase, use or disposal of pharmaceutical products and medical supplies, ie a medical stock-taking system, except for invoices kept by the finance department.”
“There was no process to record what products or supplies were stored by British Cycling at the velodrome or elsewhere, and what was checked in and out of the medical room on site,”
“The medical room at the velodrome was chaotic and disorganised. There was no apparent filing system and papers were just piled up in cupboards and filing cabinets.
“Electronic medical records were not kept nor was there any back-up system.”
"We found little, if any, evidence of supervision or executive oversigt of the Team Doctors (Dr. Freeman and Dr. Steve Peters) by British Cycling"

Med andre ord; holdet der har brugt som forklaring på sin egen succes at de var det bedst organiserede hold i verden havde ikke styr på noget som helt når det kom til håndtering af holdlæger, medicinindkøb og medicinudlevering.
