Rapha and Sky to part

There will be some tears.

Rapha and Sky have put together some pretty decent cycling kit over their
years together. It might have been plain and mainly black, but it was often
imitated. Never bettered.

As brands go, Rapha is divisive and marmite. But the quality cannot be
underestimated.

I had a tour of their London base a while back and the innovation, thought
and detail that goes into all pieces is mind boggling.

So who will get the Sky gig from the end of 2016 then?

Nike are the forum posters first choice, so we will wait and see.
