On 3 March 2020 we lost our much loved team mate, colleague and friend Nico Portal. A universally popular figure within the sport, Nico joined the team initially as a rider, before moving into the role of Sport Director during 2011. His skill, passion and work-ethic saw him oversee an incredible eight Grand Tour victories. Following his tragic death, the team received comfort from an incredible outpouring of well wishes and support. It was touching to see everyone loved Nico just as much as we did. This page contains a number of tributes to a much-missed member of the team.
