In a New Year message Team Sky's Principal, Sir Dave, says he hopes to keep leading the sport to a clean and innovative future...

Sir Dave Brailsford says 2016 needs to be Team Sky’s most successful yet to help its goal of becoming the “greatest cycling team in the world”.

Having won the Tour de France with Chris Froome for the second year running in 2015, Team Sky’s Team Pricipal, Brailsford, says he believes Sky is on its way to achieving its 2020 Vision, and says fans should ‘watch this space’ for an announcement in the coming weeks.

Sir Dave says in his Team Sky blog that after a bit of time off over Christmas (where he also dressed up as Santa) the team is now back to working hard with its riders in Majorca.

He said: “2015 was a happy year for Team Sky, but our approach to our sport is always about looking forward not back and I am confident 2016 can be even better. 

“And after my brief stint as Santa Claus at the team Christmas party I am now back in full on work mode making sure we do everything we need to do to prepare and get us ready to meet more big challenges in the coming season. The better we do in one year, the more we want to achieve the next. That is the only way we know and it is what makes us just as excited today as when the whole Team Sky journey began.”

Sir Dave says fans should look out in the next couple of weeks for the 2020 Vision for Team Sky.

“In the next two weeks we will outline exactly what we want to achieve and I can promise you that they are a set of objectives to excite any cycling team and any cycling fan. I firmly believe we have the team to deliver excellent results this season, so watch this space.

He says Team Sky hopes to lead the sport towards an innovative and clean future, and he hopes they will keep inspiring people to get out and ride.

“At the same time as meeting the main goal of winning bike races, we will continue to play a leadership role in moving the great sport of cycling forward to a brighter future - innovating, riding clean and winning clean,” said Brailsford.

“We want more people to become fans of the sport and also to fall in love with the bike. In that way cycling can become a force for good in their own lives.”
