One of Sir Bradley Wiggins former team doctors has expressed surprise at the decision to allow him to use a triamcinolone ahead of three major races.Prentice Steffen questioned the decision of the International Cycling Union to grant Wiggins a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) for the powerful corticosteroid triamcinolone, which he was permitted to take just days before the 2012 Tour de France, which he won, as well as the 2011 Tour and the 2013 Giro dItalia.Steffen was Wiggins doctor at Garmin Slipstream, with whom he finished fourth in the 2009 Tour de France before the Briton joined Team SkySteffen told the BBCs Newsnight programme that the leaked details of Wiggins TUEs did not look good.He said: I was surprised to see there were TUEs documented for intramuscular triamcinolone just before three major events - two Tours de France and one Tour dItalia.You do have to think it is kind of coincidental that a big dose of intramuscular long-acting corticosteroids would be needed at that...exact time before the most important race of the season.I would say certainly now in retrospect it doesnt look good, it doesnt look right from a health or sporting perspective.Wiggins TUEs, exemptions which allow athletes to take substances banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency if they have a medical need, were released by Russian hackers. A group known as The Fancy Bears have leaked the private medical records of dozens of athletes after gaining access to the WADA database.There is no suggestion any athlete has broken anti-doping rules, but Wiggins, the five-time Olympic champion, has found himself the focus of the most scrutiny.A spokesperson for the 36-year-old said: Theres nothing new here. Everyone knows Brad suffers from asthma. His medical treatment is BC- (British Cycling) and UCI - (International Cycling Union) approved and like all Team GB athletes he follows WADA regulations to the letter.The leak of these records is an attempt to undermine the credibility of WADA and thats something for them to deal with.Team Sky, the British team Wiggins left in 2015, said all of its TUE applications have been managed and recorded in line with the rules.Wiggins asthma and pollen allergies are well documented, but the revelation that he three times received injections of a drug intended for acute allergic reactions on the eve of his biggest race of the season has attracted criticism.Wiggins will personally address the controversy for the first time when he appears on the Andrew Marr Show on BBC1 on Sunday.

Wales number eight Taulupe Faletau will return for Bath in the Aviva Premiership clash with Bristol at the Recreation Ground on Friday night.Faletaus participation will put him into contention for the Test against South Africa on November 26. The 25-year-old has not featured for his club since the opening weekend of the season in early September when he suffered a knee injury on his debut against Northampton.Despite his ongoing rehabilitation, Faletau, capped 61 times for Wales, was included in the autumn internationals squad.After being released to train with Bath for the crunch match against local rivals Bristol, Faletau is scheduled to return to the Wales squad at the start of next week in the build-up to the Test against the Springboks in Cardiff.Albeit possibly shortlived, Bath will go top of the Premiership table with victory over a Bristol side which finally gained their first win of the season when they beat Sale Sharks in the Anglo-Welsh Cup last week.Baths Max Clark will return at outside centre following his injury lay-off, while Australian Ben Tapuai has been named on the bench following his arrival from Super Rugby side Western Force.Bath director of rugby Todd Blackadder said: It is great to have Taulupe Faletau and Max Clark back amongst the mix. We have actually had a bit of a selection headache this week, which was an interesting change for us.We have got to pick ourselves back up after the disappointing start to the Anglo-Welsh Cup campaign and get backk on the horse for this next block of crucial Aviva Premiership games.ddddddddddddWe know how much this game means to our supporters, and we are going to do all we can to make sure they leave the Rec with a smile on their face tomorrow night.Bristol will head into a first Premiership game since rugby director Andy Robinson departed the club. Despite having lost all seven league games so far, acting head coach Mark Tainton is remaining upbeat.The guys are in positive spirits following last weekends victory, but we have to back that up with a performance against Bath in the Premiership, he said. These are the sort of games that players relish; a local derby in front of a full house and live, so it will be a fantastic atmosphere.Fridays other matches see Northampton take on struggling Worcester at Sixways, while Newcastle host Exeter. Falcons director of rugby Dean Richards wants his players to remain focused at Kingston Park, which looks set for a biggest home crowd of the season, with Northumbria University to play Hartpury College beforehand.Richards said: An atmosphere like that is amazing, and it does get inside the players heads. As a coach you almost have to check yourself and distance yourself from it, you have to remain focused when its game time, but there is no doubting the fact that a full, loud stadium is a massive advantage for us.
