Adam Yates Joins Team Ineos and Other Cool News from the World of Cycling

By Monica Buck

Another Monday is here and our news from the world of cycling with it. So, what did you miss?

Yates leaves Mitchelton-Scott

The 28-year-old will join the Ineos Grenadiers in January 2021. Adam Yates won the UAE Tour at the start of this year’s season, and his fourth place at the 2016 Tour de France indicates he should become one of the team’s Grand Tour contenders.

Team Principal Sir Dave Brailsford said: “I’m really delighted that Adam is finally joining the team. It feels like the timing is just right as he enters the prime of his career and we embark on a new era as the INEOS Grenadiers.

“As a global team with a British heart, Adam’s no-nonsense British character is a perfect fit. He knows how to win and his gritty, determined and resilient approach are exactly the attributes we are looking to foster as we assemble the new INEOS Grenadiers to be built on purpose.”

What do you think about this move? Will it benefit both Yates and Ineos?

Adam Yates said: “The prospect of riding for a British team is one that I am extremely excited about. I’ve witnessed the rise of cycling in the UK during my career and I think this has been spurred on by success of British riders and this team.”

Real or just a pose?
