Team Tinkoff (TNK)

The Tinkoff jersey is neon yellow. But exceptional rider Peter Sagan will be starting this year in the rainbow jersey of the world champion. The Slovakian rider demonstrated his penchant for sprints on the Tour de Suisse again last year, winning the 10th and 11th stages. With 11 stage wins in the last five years, he has been one of the most successful riders on the Tour. Since 2015, he has shared this record number of stage wins with cycling legends Ferdy Kübler and Hugo Koblet.

In addition to Peter Sagan, the Russian Oleg Tinkov's crew is broadly based and includes winning riders like Alberto Contador or Rafal Majka, who came in tenth overall in the 2015 Tour de Suisse. Team Tinkoff is likely to be very ambitious in 2016 as well, as Oleg Tinkov intends to sell his team in 2017.
