Team Sky will be trialling a new mobile ‘Race Hub’ during this year’s Vuelta a Espana.

The Race Hub forms an important part of Team Sky's programme to support all its staff at race and modernise the on race accommodation provided for them.   
 
The Team Sky Race Hub will provide a new flexible space for riders and staff that can be used on race in a variety of different ways - for example communal eating, Team briefings and pre and post-race relaxation. It can also be used for guest hospitality and media.  
 
Team Principal Sir Dave Brailsford said:  “As a Team we have always prioritised the support we give to our riders and staff. We all know how demanding Grand Tours can be. 

"The nature of our sport inevitably involves thousands of kilometres of racing, constant travel between stages, ever changing hotel accommodation and long hours. We know how much all our people give to the Team and the sacrifices they make. 

“As a result we have become increasingly focused over the past year on the need to provide our staff with an environment where we can look after them even better - a space where they can relax more easily, eat and be briefed together. Rest and recovery are obviously every bit as important as training for performance."

I believe the Race Hub will help strengthen our team culture further and foster even greater communication and camaraderie between riders and staff.”
He added: “This is not just about the riders but also the team behind the team who work from dawn long into the night to help them perform at their best."
 
“I believe the Race Hub will help strengthen our team culture further and foster even greater communication and camaraderie between riders and staff. 
 
“We will be trailing the new Race Hub at this year's Vuelta and looking at how we can best use it going forward to support the Team.  
 
“We are constantly looking for ways where we can innovate, modernise and improve and we see this as an important next step of that programme.”
