    So disappointing, especially as a potential development route for young riders.

    A former workmate of mine had a job with them as a mechanic, he'll be gutted.

    Wiggins seems okay with it coming to an end. He reckons that it has just come to a natural conclusion.

    The statement was quite short on details, natural conclusion is just management backtalk. I'm having some very cynical thoughts about this.

    I guess they have just failed to secure sponsorship.

    Or is there a less dull & prosaic explanation?

    Lad from my club was on the team as a rider. He’s good but tbh probably not quite good enough to get picked up by a bigger team. Could be his pro career over before it’s really begun.

    Is this his character? Try something then move on when it's does t quite work out?

    Or as already said Is it lack of sponsorship?

    Just seems s little odd if your fully committed to finally walk away....

    Listening to him on the ES podcast he explains his reasons. The stress of finding sponsors every year, needing a lot of extra work and money to move up a level and that he wants to pursue other interests in the sport.
    It's a good listen anyway and he and Matt Stephens are both funny and insightful

    He's a bit of a restless soul isn't he. Running his own team ... becoming a rower ... going into social work.
