Team Sky wants to continue building on the success of the past five years and presented its  vision for the next five years at a press day on Majorca this weekend. Looking ahead to 2020, team principal David Brailsford says the British team is ready to add to its tally of 165 victories and continue to innovate in professional cycling.

"The first chapter of Team Sky was successful," Brailsford said. "We set out to win the Tour de France, to do it clean and to do it with a British rider. We have done that twice. And we have helped inspire a million more people in the UK to take up cycling. But it is in our DNA to think that we could have gone further, that we could have achieved more. And we are now hungrier than ever."
