With Thursday's news that Chris Froome will be moving to Israel Start-Up Nation at the end of the 2020 season, the four-time Tour de France champion will undergo a wholesale change in sponsorship of his bike, components, kit and accessories. For the first time in 10 years, Froome will say addio to the Pinarello brand that he's ridden to no fewer than seven Grand Tour victories, and hello to British brand Factor.
