Former teammate is now a team director
Former Paris-Roubaix winner Servais Knaven settled into the role of director sportif at Sky over a year ago, and the Dutchman has made the transition from bike to team car appear seamless. Popular with the riders, knowledgeable on race tactics and still hungry for success, he’s the archetypal team player.
In 2012, he has been reunited with Mark Cavendish. The two rode together just as Knaven’s career was beginning to wind down and Cavendish began his trajectory to the top of the sport.
Both men are currently at the Tour of Oman where Cavendish is on the hunt for stage wins, and in this exclusive video Knaven talks about the world champions form and fitness.
