Sean Yates has joined Nippo Delko One Provence as a coach. He linked up with the French ProTeam for the first time last week at a training camp in Moustiers-Sainte-Marie in southern France.

Yates last worked in the professional peloton in 2016, when he was a directeur sportif with Tinkoff-Saxo, which disbanded at the end of that season. The 60-year-old later switched his attention to a coaching business.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
