Team Ineos have applied to the UCI to change their name and team colours for the rest of the season, with the British WorldTour team confirming it will be known as the 'Ineos Grenadiers' from the start of  the Tour de France on August 29 to promote the new 4x4 SUV vehicle recently launched by Ineos Automotive.

The Tuttobiciweb and Spaziociclismo websites revealed details of the changes on Wednesday morning, with Ride Media in Australia revealing an image of a mock-up of the new jersey that was apparently distributed by Tour de France organiser ASO and seen by other media.

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.
