LONDON (VN) — Sean Yates and Team Sky have parted ways, according to a British newspaper.
The Telegraph reports that Yates “has left the team with immediate effect” following an interview with general manager David Brailsford, who is purging the squad of anyone with a past connection to doping.
It’s not clear what Yates’ offense may have been, the Telegraph reported. Yates — who wore the yellow jersey for a day during the 1994 Tour de France — rode with Lance Armstrong at Motorola and then coached him at Discovery in 2005 and Astana in 2009.
He joined Sky in 2010.
