Jess Varnish GB cyclist wants to resume career after Shane Sutton controversy

Wednesday, 1 March 2017 :  Varnish, 26, was dropped from British Cycling’s elite programme last April, after which former technical director Shane Sutton was found to have used sexist language towards her.

Sutton was later cleared of eight of nine allegations.

However, lawyer Simon Fenton told that Varnish now “wants the possibility of winning gold medals”.

He also described Varnish’s attempts to discover why she was dropped from British Cycling’s elite programme as “incredibly frustrating”.

And he was critical of British Cycling, saying the governing body had been “anything but open”.

“It’s been incredibly frustrating,” said Fenton. “We’ve had so much back from them late and heavily redacted.

“We wanted to know why she was hoofed off the Olympic podium programme and they’re claiming confidentiality as a reason for not telling us.

“If we want to force disclosure we now have to take legal proceedings, but British Cycling’s pockets are a lot deeper than Jess’.
