British Cycling announces independent review

Home » About us

British Cycling is announcing the formation of an independent review, in conjunction with UK Sport, of the federation's performance programmes following allegations of discriminatory behaviour.

We are fully committed to the principles and active promotion of equality of opportunity and we must take any such allegations seriously.

The terms of the review will be announced in due course and no further comment will be made at this stage.


Following the announcement of an independent review into British Cycling’s performance programmes, we are also announcing technical director Shane Sutton has been suspended pending an internal investigation into the allegations of discrimination that have been reported in the press.
