COLOM­BIAN Ser­gio He­nao will spear­head Team Sky’s squad at the Vuelta a Es­pana, which be­gins on Satur­day.

The 25-year-old is re­garded as one of the top climbers in the sport and has been cho­sen as leader of a nine-strong group.

Team Sky prin­ci­pal Sir Dave Brails­ford said: “It’s a tes­ta­ment to the strength and depth in this team that we can line up in all three Grand Tours with such strong squads.

“This is a great chance for Ser­gio to demon­strate what he is ca­pa­ble of.”
