Team Sky

Team Sky entered the pro peloton in 2010 with the bold aim of winning the Tour de France with a British rider within five years. Just three years later it achieved its goal when Bradley Wiggins was crowned the first British winner in 2012.

Bringing its knowledge and philosophies across from the British Cycling track programme, Dave Brailsford and the team changed the way many others operated in the pro scene. Its attention to detail – commonly known as marginal gains – and increased focus on coaches working within the team saw many others follow suit.

Sky continue to be a dominant force in Grand Tours, but they are yet to win a monument and its results in one-day races belies the talent in its squad. Naturalised Brit Chris Froome now leads the team at the Tour, while Wiggins is set to ride upto Paris-Roubaix on the road before returning to the track for the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
