Statement from Jess Varnish in response to the British Cycling Statement today

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.

Statement in response to the Sky Sports article published today (15th July 2016)

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.

Statement regarding the announcement of a British Cycling appeals procedure for non-programme riders

I'm feeling really excited about my future. I'm proud to say that I've completed my Personal Training exams, am completing my Pilates instructor exams, and am hoping to study Sports Nutrition at Manchester Metropolitan University. I've also received exciting offers from the Cycling World, including professional cycling teams, and am certainly not giving up on my dream of continuing to compete as a professional athlete.

I want to compete for Great Britain again. I am not too old. I am not a waste of UK Sport's money. I can win more medals.
