I spoke out because I wanted to shine a light on the culture at British Cycling, a culture that in my mind was incorrect. I'm relieved that the British Cycling board have acknowledged that the language used was inappropriate and discriminatory and I would like to thank those involved and those that contributed to the investigation for their time and effort.

I wanted to shine a light on the culture of fear at British Cycling, and I'm glad that numerous other riders and staff came forward to share their experiences. I have spoken with and shared information and evidence with both British Cycling and UK Sport and co-operated in their respective investigations which are still due to be published. Therefore I don't think it would be responsible or fair to comment further around this matter until these investigations have had a chance to run their course.
