Tinkoff-Saxo train together on Gran Canaria (video)

Peter Sagan, Alberto Contador, Sean Yates and the Tinkoff-Saxo team gather on Gran Canaria

The whole of the Tinkoff-Saxo team have gathered on the Spanish island of Gran Canaria for a pre-season training camp.

Although elements of the Russian WorldTour team took part in a team-building trip to Mount Kilimanjaro last month, it's the first time that the entire 2015 squad has assembled in one place.

The riders were joined by team staff, including British directeur sportif Sean Yates, who can be seen riding along with the squad in opening few seconds of the team's video.

As it is still the end of the 2014 season, several newly-signed riders such as Peter Sagan are still wearing their old team's kit, as they are contracted to do so until the end of the year. The rest of the team are sporting Tinkoff-Saxo's newly-unveiled camouflage training strip.

Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
