Marcus Ljungqvist has left his role as Team Sky's directeur sportif to spend time away from cycling, the squad announced on Tuesday morning. Ljungqvist is the second DS to depart from the British-based team inside a month after Dan Hunt announced a move to become Premier League football head of elite performance in November after a year at Sky.

"After almost 20 years on the road hopefully I can now spend more time at home with my family. That is my main aim at the moment," Ljungqvist said in a team statement.
