Are Sky suggesting by their title that other teams are somehow less professional? Victories in an Adelaide warm-up criterium, a semi-classic and made to measure prologue will hardly have the other ‘pro’ teams quaking in their boots! Lets face facts Brailsford’s track success is more likely to do with circumstance, i.e. a group of outstanding riders at the right time, rather than his delusional academic prowess. Furthermore, as many in the cycling world have commented, inc Cavendish, track success even at Olympic level is a poor relation to top flight road success, something that Sky are all too short of. As many big spending football teams have found, big budgets do not necessarily buy a team. The repercussions of his contract breaking dealings will not be forgotten by many established and dare I say ’more professional’ cycling teams leaving them outcasts in the peloton for many yrs to come.
