I thought part of what team Sky was about was to help develope British riders
Reluctantly, in their defence I, expect Stannard would have been be riding, and Kennaugh is presumably ill? But completely agree about the exclusion of Wiggo
The whole thing has been a PR disaster for Sky and Froome. Will take a bit of a shine off The UK Tour for many I think
Remember going to see the Brighton stage in 1994. Trying to pick out Boardman and Yates. 20 years later, and this celebration of British cycling looks like having only two more UK riders, and that's only if include Froome as British.
