British Cycling to introduce new code of conduct

Wednesday, 12 April 2017 :  The review was commissioned in April 2016 by British Cycling and UK Sport after former technical director Shane Sutton was found to have used sexist language towards cyclist Jess Varnish.

The findings for the report were initially due in November last year but legal matters have caused delays and the final report is now due in May.

However, a draft report was published and last month British cycling released a 39-point action plan and the new code of conduct is part of that.

Jonathan Browning, head of British Cycling, said: “The combination of new leadership team and structure, and the introduction of professional processes will ensure that we deliver on this promise.”

He also stressed that systems were being put in place in order to protect individual riders from “behaviours that are inappropriate”.
