The more I think about this embargo the more it doesn't pass the smell test.
The Skins promote their company as being for fairness in sports, integrity. Yet they employed a cheater and a fraud. (Rob Young and their own employee that rode along). Now they have instituted an embargo so they can have the report released with the biggest bang to further their publicity and get their name out?
They are trying to profit from their own internal cheating.
Release the report!
If your main aim is to see RY publicly go down in flames, not just for this run but for the whole rotten story he's spun since the beginning, then releasing the report to the press and giving them a couple of days to pull a story together is totally the best thing. In the UK the Sunday papers are where the big stories come out on the tabloid end, and in the quality papers they have more scope for longer articles.
"here's a graph of cadence data" is less of a story for 99% of people than "running star's tangled web of lies exposed, and here's a tearful confession interview with him, and the head of the sports company that turned from being his biggest backer to exposing his lies".
