“I’d like to think if I can go back and do it again it will bring some credibility back to the sport,” BBC Sportquotes him as saying. “I know for a fact some people were dubious about the results I got last [season] and Bradley (his Team Sky teammate Sir Bradley Wiggins) the year before.
“I know myself that my results aren’t going to be stripped, but it will take time before people will see they are going to stand.
“I think we’re through the toughest time of it now. It is really a minority of riders breaking the rules now and getting caught, but we are still living in that post-doping era where we are having to deal with a lot of negativity.”
