Six seasons since his departure from Team Sky, Richie Porte has returned to the British team now known as the Ineos Grenadiers.

In that time, the team has unsurprisingly undergone various levels of change: Behind the scenes, the team has seen a restructure of management duties following the death of Nico Portal; Froome's recent departure means the end of an era with regards to team leadership; and with the departure of Sky as a sponsor, the team has since been given two new names, firstly Team Ineos, and more recently the Ineos Grenadiers. Dave Brailsford has even spoken of a new, more exciting and less clinical approach to racing.

On the bike, Josh has been riding and racing for over 15 years. He started out racing cross country in his teens back when 26-inch wheels and triple chainsets were still mainstream, but he found favour in road racing in his early 20s, racing at a local and national level for Somerset-based Team Tor 2000. These days he rides indoors for convenience and fitness, and outdoors for fun on road, gravel, 'cross and cross-country bikes, the latter usually with his two dogs in tow.
