The team of the Brits is superlative in every sense. Team Sky sets the benchmark when it comes to budget, support staff and material.
The dark ‘knights’ from the British Isles will now be riding in white, with a sky blue stripe across their chest.
Each rider of Team Sky is a champion in his own discipline: be it multiple Tour de France winner Chris Froome, Wout Poels who secured a long-coveted Monument victory for the Brits at Liege-Bastogne-Liege, 2014 world road cycling champion Michael Kiatkowski who tasted victory in this year’s Tirreno-Adriatico race, or 2008 team pursuit Olympic champion Geraint Thomas. Thomas missed out on overall victory at the Tour de Suisse 2015 by just five seconds. Will he be lining up again in 2018?
