Can't post the link as I'm on the mobile but Alex Dowsett has just announced he will be leaving Sky for Movistar. Shame to see him go but hopefully he will get a grand tour ride. Makes me wonder if anyone is going to be left at sky by the end of the week!

    Any reason given for the move? Or just to get on the grand tour scene?

    Doesn't give a specific reason only he's looking forward to a new opportunity. I suppose if they offered him enough money, bills to pay and all that but it'll be a shame not to see him at sky.

    Now If I was a cynic........

    he's left sky just after they announced the year zero drugs thing...and he's moved to a spanish team

    Well, as a cynic, probably helpful to know that this move to Movistar has been in the offing for several months.

    Throw a dart at a host of riders names and anyone of them could have/has said that this year, tbh

    Doesnt make it worthy of cruxifiction by media and internetz peeps
