Trinity Racing being at the Tour of the Alps is "huge" for the team, Pete Kennaugh has said, as he experiences the "full circle" of being around people he used to ride with at Team Sky, but now as a member of staff.

The British UCI Continental team, run by Andrew McQuaid, is flying the flag for the UK domestic scene at the week-long stage race, and Kennaugh, the squad's directeur sportif at Trinity Racing and former Team Sky professional told Cycling Weekly that so far, the overall performance from his team has been even better than he expected.
