Team Ineos has helped provide NHS staff in the United Kingdom with hand sanitizer after their owner Jim Ratcliffe converted three of his plants into producers of the product. The move was made in response to a ‘call to arms’ from the UK government with the growing coronavirus pandemic forcing countries around the world into various levels of lockdown. 

With racing suspended across all of Europe the Team Ineos logistics team were used to help with the delivery of the hand sanitizer products, as the petroleum company looks to roll out, "up to a million bottles of INEOS' new hand sanitizer."

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.
