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.

A successful start to 2015 included overall wins in Paris-Nice (Richie Porte), Omloop Het Nieuwsblad (Ian Stannard), E3 Harelbeke (Geraint Thomas), the Tour de Yorkshire (Lars Petter Nordhaug) and the Criterium du Dauphine (Chris Froome).
