Excellent news as far as I'm concerned.
Providing a new partner (cash machine) can be found.

Why? I'm asking out of genuine interest.

 In the short term, any fallout from a doping positive in the road team will still impact the whole of BC. Getting tarred with the same brush etc.
It will take time to gain any distance from Sky, but ultimately, any distance is good.

It is, but it's not exclusive.

Isn't it Brailsford as Sky (or successor sponsor) DS that the track team needs to be distanced from? Whoever sponsors what was Sky, if AN Other road rider goes down for doping then if Brailsford is still connected to the road and track team there will be guilt by association?

Interesting that you see this as a risk. Any particular road names in mind? Smile

Edit - just read article properly and realise that it's Sky standing down as sponsor of GB cycling, not the road team, so questions above probably irrelevant. Though it's still probably personnel rather than sponsors where "clear blue water" between GB roadies and trackies needs to be created and maintained. (If one is concerned about guilt by association.) A few years of separation is probably required as well.

did brailsford stand down from the track position?
