Alex Dowset leaves sky.

Postby Paul 8v » Tue Oct 30, 2012 12:32 pm

Can't post the link as I'm on the mobile but Alex Dowsett has just announced he will be leaving Sky for Movistar. Shame to see him go but hopefully he will get a grand tour ride. Makes me wonder if anyone is going to be left at sky by the end of the week!

Any reason given for the move? Or just to get on the grand tour scene?

Doesn't give a specific reason only he's looking forward to a new opportunity. I suppose if they offered him enough money, bills to pay and all that but it'll be a shame not to see him at sky.

Now If I was a cynic........

he's left sky just after they announced the year zero drugs thing...and he's moved to a spanish team

Well, as a cynic, probably helpful to know that this move to Movistar has been in the offing for several months.

He was a legend.

Or was that Lance...?
