I'm not sure who us the most excited my 3 year old little girl knowing Santa is coming tonight or me desperately wanting to unveil our rider line up for 2017. The prospect of the team launch is making me all giddy with excitement and just like Santa's little elves we are busy running around none stop planning and working on sponsors, coaches and other various things to get us ready for the season.
I know I'm not the first team manager to go though this I'm sure Sir Dave must of thought it was Christmas when he built team Sky. Like team Sky we are built on a good solid foundation, with good people helping and doing their part almost like links in a chain driving the bike forward for one end goal. Our goal is to be the best we can, but not just as riders but as people enjoying what we do and giving something back to this sport we love.
Some of our older riders will be taking the younger riders under their wing to guide them on this adventure and help them develop, not just as riders but as people. This says a lot about our riders and why we picked them. A race win, is a win, a moment of time in your life, a young person you help and guide is a new friend for life. This is what Innovation is all about.
Merry Christmas everyone see you on the start line.
