At a glance there was little different about Ian Boswell at the recent Tour of Oman. Yes, the red and white jersey of Katusha-Alpecin was new, but his place on the front of the peloton, working for a team leader was not.

Boswell though, is hoping the new kit and deep red Canyon Ultimate, with which he replaced Team Sky’s Pinarello, will be far more than a superficial change in his career. After five seasons with the British team, 27-year-old American is hoping for bigger things in the colours of Katusha-Alpecin, starting at Paris-Nice on Sunday.
