Time to get race ready

February 21, 2017

It’s time to fill up the water bottle, don the cycling gloves and brace yourself for another adrenaline-fuelled season of cycling.

Once again we’ll be rooting for the team in blue – Team Sky. Although, the 28 riders will have to go some to top last year’s achievements.

Chris Froome won the Tour de France in 2016 and the team claimed an incredible 39 wins.

How did they do it? Well, we reckon a fleet of fantastic support cars must play a role.

Last year this included a Mustang sporting the special yellow livery traditionally worn by the race leader. We also had Mondeo, S-MAX, Edge, and Transit models on hand to help out and they are all ready for the challenge again in 2017.

The season is already under way with the team now gearing up for this weekend’s Omloop Het Nieuwsblad this weekend, a one-day cycling race in Belgium that is included in the UCI World Tour for the first time this year.
