Team Sky boss Sir Brailsford is on a plan for a great overhaul of the long-term vision that he has been dream for his team post the failure to triumph at 2014 Grand Tour.
Sir Dave, who led Sky to 2 great triumphs on a row at Tour France with Bradley Wiggins & Chris Froome as champs in 2012 & 2013, admitted the fact that his squad’s sustained success might have affected the 2014 fate.
His team got dropped from a stellar 2nd to a much lower 9th stand in World Tour UCI Team ranks which prompted Dave to quit his position with Brit Cycling to commit himself to Sky with full vigor.
“I feel you are in the danger of being into Groundhog Day- such a situation where you kind of stay stuck to same solutions for same problems”, remarked Sir Dave. “I think there is another chapter before us since I don’t feel that we are in the same stand where we’re while we started Sky”, he went on.
“For me it is everything regarding what world’s beat squad would look like 6 years from now in the year 2020: we would work hard & start again.”
A part of Sir Brailsford’s 2020 vision is a rising cosmopolitan stream of cyclists for a squad with mighty Brit roots right from its inception back in the year 2009.
Lars Nordhaug from Norway would come back next year whilst Scottish Andrew Fenn & Irish rider Nicolas Roche have joined up with Sir Dave’s squad – along with Leopold Konig from Czechoslovakia, Wout Poels from Netherlands & Elia Viviani from Italy.
Whist Froome is speculated to take Sky lead in 2015 Tour France after taking part at both Giro & Vuelta, Sky is not exactly clear about Sir Bradley Wiggins.
