Team Sky renews Pinarello deal

UCI WorldTour cycling outfit Team Sky has extended its partnership with Pinarello by three years to take its co-operation with the Italian bike manufacturer into a seventh season.

Pinarello was a founding partner of Team Sky in 2010 and has worked with the British squad since then to develop road and time-trial bikes.

Team Sky riders have claimed a total of 136 wins on Pinarello bikes, worn the leader’s jersey at each of cycling’s Grand Tours and won the last two editions of the Tour de France courtesy of Sir Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome.
