Kennaugh backs Brailsford

Riders take to Twitter to back boss

Peter Kennaugh has taken to twitter to publicly back Team Sky boss Sir David Brailsford.

It follows a report claiming several riders were involved in a mutiny to have the under-fire chief removed from his role.

Kennaugh tweeted "I think all Team would join me in saying they are completely behind Dave".

Team Sky and British Cycling are under pressure after a UK Anti-Doping drug probe said investigators met "resistance" during their investigations.

According top the Daily Telegraph, they also could not verify the contents of the infamous jiffy bag delivered to Sir Bradley Wiggins in 2011 and found a shocking lack of medical record-keeping.

Several other Team Sky riders showed support for Brailsford on Twitter including Geraint Thomas, Luke Rowe, Owen Doull and Elia Viviani.

There has been no comment from three-time Tour de France champion Chris Froome.
