    Great article, with a very positive outcome for Nathan. It’s not a step back if your quality of life improves, and with that comes the opportunity to lead! Goodluck mate, I look forward to watching you race :)

      Thanks Lach – he could well end up back at WorldTour down the line. At 27, he’s still pretty young..

    Really great story Shane, it’s so good to read a well researched piece like this and see a journo who does actual research prior.

      Thank you JJ, much appreciated

    Great article. I wish Nathan the very best in his time at Drapac. They’re a quality outfit and seem like a perfect fit for Nathan, who, himself, is a quality rider and a really good guy. I had the pleasure of meeting him at a Soigneur weekend last year and he was grounded and humble. I can’t wait to see him at the pointy end of the races again.

      Thanks Jessy – he did come across as grounded and humble in our chat, too – a decent chap. Will be good to see him fight for wins next year…

    Discussion about results is a null point here, there is no way a DS expects EVERY rider on the roster to be pulling results regularly. Cycling is a team sport and teams have a mixture of workers and leaders, no team comprises entirely of leaders so results for every rider on a team is unnecessary, especially for a rider like Earle who so often (if not always) was slotted into a workers role. Sky haven’t dropped Earle because he wasn’t a big winner, Sky has dropped Earle because they think they can find someone to do his job (a workhorse) better
