After a mixed 2014 campaign, Team Sky head into 2015 with an influx of new talent on the roster and manager Dave Brailsford promises a reboot to the squad’s strategy as they start their sixth season of existence.

Injury and illness unravelled the Grand Tour ambitions of Chris Froome and Richie Porte, respectively, last season, but the two men will again lead the line for Sky in three-week races in 2015. Porte is pencilled in to lead the team at the Giro d’Italia, while Froome will return to the Tour de France still smarting from his early exit last July.

The emphasis of Sky’s transfer campaign was primarily on bolstering the cadre of climbing talent on the team, and new arrivals Leopold König, Wout Poels and Nicolas Roche could all feature in support of Froome at the Tour. Elia Viviani, meanwhile, comes on board from Cannondale to give Sky an additional option in the sprints and in the Spring Classics, and the Italian will also have the opportunity to continue his track career.

Another man with designs on the cobbles and the track in 2015, of course, is Bradley Wiggins. On Monday morning, he became the final name to be added to Sky’s roster after it was confirmed that he has signed on with the team up to and including Paris-Roubaix in April, before switching his attention to his summer Hour Record attempt and the team pursuit at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
