BBC Sport – Sean Yates leaves Team Sky and announces retirement.

Seen as a blow to the Sky Team for next year – there is speculation that Yates’s departure may have been hurried up because of his previous association with Lance Armstrong in the US Postal Team and later in Astana.

Yates and the team have both been at pains to play that possibility down and have confirmed that Yates’s departure is for purely personal reasons.
