Besieged Team Sky principal Sir Dave Brailsford has hit back at the chairman of UK Anti-Doping for “undermining” the current probe into allegations of malpractice in cycling.
Brailsford, speaking in Majorca, was commenting for the first time in public since his grilling before the parliamentary Culture, Media and Sport (CMS) select committee last month.
Evidence provided by Brailsford and other leading figures in British cycling was branded "extraordinary" and "very disappointing" by UK Anti-Doping chairman David Kenworthy.
But Brailsford, who insists he is not going to quit after presiding over Sky's four Tour de France triumphs in the last five races, countered: "The only extraordinary thing, I think, was the chairman of UKAD's comments the other day when he commented about an ongoing investigation.

"To try to dive in halfway through and undermine that process is not... for me, I don't think most fair-minded people would think that was the best way of doing it.
"I'm just going to respect that process, do the right thing and then when that's concluded we can all move on."
Brailsford, the British Cycling performance director until April 2014, masterminded Team GB's Olympic domination of the velodrome in Beijing and London 2014, but he has faced calls to step down over his role amid the furore.
UKAD is investigating a package delivered to Sir Bradley Wiggins almost six years ago after the Criterium du Dauphine, but Team Sky have always denied "wrongdoing" and insist no anti-doping rule violation has taken place.
