Tinkoff team owner Oleg Tinkov is shutting down the team the end of this season but he has vowed to return to the sport in the future and win the Tour de France.
After “a few seasons off I’ll come back with a new big project,” he told Sporza. “I’m going to rest for a few seasons and relax with my family in Russia, but then I’ll come back with new big product.”
Despite not winning a Tour de France title since his Tinkoff project began, Tinkov is happy with what his team has done. “I’m very pleased with our Tour. We had three days in yellow, three stage wins, the polka dot jersey and the green jersey. I could not expect more from my last Tour.”
