Audio - Listen to Team Sky launch press conference

Dave Brailsford and his management team talk about how they will meet their targets for success

Dave Brailsford, Shane Sutton, Sean Yates and other members of the Team Sky management answer questions on what they are aiming to do in year one, and how they are aiming to do it, plus will the team publish details of their internal drug testing regime, and has the manner of some signings soured relations with other teams. 

While you're listening to Brailsford and co mapping out their plans why not familiarise yourself with the riders they'll be in charge of - we've got a gallery of the entire team of riders – Sky supplied loads of different types of shot of each so we've given you a selection, connoiseurs of this sort of thing should  be sure to look out for Steve Cummins, Greg Henderson (scary) and Thomas Lofkvist (porn star).

Coming up… fresh from yesterday's launch presentation, a Team Sky Schwag Grab!'s founder and first editor, nowadays to be found riding a spreadsheet. Tony's journey in cycling media started in 1997 as production editor and then deputy editor of Total Bike, acting editor of Total Mountain Bike and then seven years as editor of Cycling Plus. He launched his first cycling website - the Cycling Plus Forum at the turn of the century. In 2006 he left C+ to head up the launch team for Bike Radar which he edited until 2008, when he co-launched the multi-award winning - finally handing on the reins in 2021 to Jack Sexty. His favourite ride is his ‘commute’ - which he does most days inc weekends and he’s been cycle-commuting since 1994. His favourite bikes are titanium and have disc brakes, though he'd like to own a carbon bike one day.
