159: The end of Team Sky
In this episode of The Cycling Podcast, Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe meet up at London's Soho Theatre to discuss the news that Sky's sponsorship of the cycling team will come to an end in December 2019.
We reflect on Team Sky's nine years in the peloton, ask what the tenth season has in store and discuss what this means for Dave Brailsford and his star riders Chris Froome, Geraint Thomas, Michal Kwiatkowski and Egan Bernal.
But more broadly we ask what this means for professional cycling and get the views of some rival team bosses, Richard Plugge at LottoNL-Jumbo, Marc Sergeant at Lotto-Soudal and Jose Azevedo at Katusha-Alpecin.
