Sky’s withdrawal from their sponsorship of cycling at the end of 2019 is a commercial decision for them to make. Interest and participation in cycling across the UK has increased greatly since Team GB and ParalympicsGB’s wonderful achievements at London 2012. UK Sport’s support for British Cycling during the current Tokyo 2020 funding cycle remains unaltered by this decision.
