The search for a new sponsor for the current Team Sky continues its course. During several weeks in February, there was talk that the Colombian company Ecopetrol was negotiating with the current team for the next campaign. Even the director of the ensemble, Dave Brailsford, was in the country. But the issue remained there. Now, according to cyclingnwes account, the Ineos company would be close to being the new sponsor.

It is a multinational chemical company controlled by the richest person in Britain, Jim Ratcliffe. For the next campaign, in which Sky will no longer be in the peloton, have current contracts runners of the likes of Chris Froome, Geraint Thomas and Egan Bernal. Ractcliffe, that has 60% of the company, was criticized harshly in Great Britain in recent times for transferring much of its wealth to Monte Carlo, saving a high amount of taxes in this way.
