The Yates twins’, Adam and Simon, star appears to be rising higher with every sunrise in the cycling arena. It is with this rising star that Team Sky has shown interest in signing the Yates twins. Implying that it wasn’t brain surgery to note the twins will be a merit to Team Sky, the team boss, Dave Brailsford said, “We are a British team ultimately, with a global roster and global race programme, but to have them would seem to make absolute sense.”
The Yates twins cycled their way out of the amateur diapers with Adam winning the Tour of Turkey overall and winning two stages at the Tour of Britain. Despite this promising wins, the twins signed to Australias Orica-GreenEdge instead of the Team Sky.
Their decision was an excellent move and even Team Sky boss lauded it by saying,” They are in the right team; they made the right decision. They are getting their opportunities. Those opportunities are difficult to get in our team. If they were in our team they’d be working.”
Orica seems to have given the 21-year-olds an opportunity to prove their mettle and the twins have not disappointed even a tad.
Nevertheless, Team Sky wants the twins in their camp come 2016. The team’s boss, Brailsford, said it will make perfect sense to the twins in Team Sky. He added, “At a certain point in time, we’d like to think they’d ride for Sky. For sure, absolutely.”
