Steven de Jongh has left Team Sky following three seasons as Sports Director.

After the team reaffirmed its position on anti-doping, Steven disclosed that he had taken a banned substance earlier in his career as a professional rider.

Team Principal Dave Brailsford said:

“There’s no doubt about Steven’s work with us or his approach. He’s been a highly-valued Sports Director and colleague over three seasons.

“Steven deserves our respect for the courage he’s shown in being honest about the past and it’s right that we do our best to support him.

“He has our best wishes for the next step in his career.”
