Sky Pro Cycling has been characterized as a ‘revolutionary’ club and the new innovator in the sport of cycling. The team has taken a ‘scientific approach’ using money from Ruppert Murdoch’s SKY company and the cutting-edge training techniques from the British Cycling Association’s program to make one of the world’s best franchised models. SKY is a top ranked UCI team based in England. This perennial team is led by 2012 Tour de France winner and Olympic gold medalist in the individual time trial Bradley Wiggins. SKY has come into 2013 riding hot with recent victories at Critérium du Dauphiné, with Chris Froome earning a stage win and the overall and a stage win by Edvald Boasson Hagen. Boasson Hagen has also won stages at the Tour de France in his career. Riding well this season for SKY is Australia’s Richie Porte, who won the overall and earned a stage win at this year’s Paris-Nice. The 2013 squad has also earned team victories at the Giro d’Italia, Tour of Norway and Tour de Romandie. The squad also consists of young American Joe Dombrowski who won the Best Young Rider and finished 10th overall at 2012 USA Pro Challenge.
