The former chief doctor of British Cycling and Team Sky, Richard Freeman, has been permanently struck off the medical register.
A tribunal has imposed the strongest possible sanction after he was found guilty of ordering banned testosterone, knowing it would be used to dope an unnamed rider.
It happened during his time at the national velodrome in 2011.
Dr. Freeman, who can appeal, had denied that specific charge – but admitted others.
The central charge was that he ordered the Testogel “knowing or believing” it was to be given to a rider for doping.
The tribunal considered that “Dr. Freeman’s conduct surrounding the order of the Testogel amounted to a long and considered pattern of very serious dishonesty.”
The sanctions decision read: “The tribunal considered that Dr. Freeman’s behaviour is fundamentally incompatible with continued registration.
“The tribunal has therefore determined that erasure is the only sufficient sanction which would protect patients, maintain public confidence in the profession and send a clear message to Dr. Freeman, the profession and the public that his misconduct constituted behaviour unbefitting and incompatible with that of a registered doctor.
“The tribunal, therefore, determined that Dr. Freeman’s name be erased from the medical register.
