Following internal reorganisation managing director Trey Greenwood is set to leave Riis Cycling, owners of Team Saxo-Tinkoff, at the end of March after more than five years with the company. Owner Bjarne Riis, a former Tour de France winner, and the management of Riis Cycling have been working on reshaping of the company in order to further strengthen their focus on the commercial and sporting activities; Riis himself will take over as CEO although some responsibilities of the position will be hived off to new newly created technical director and a commercial director positions.
Commenting on his decision to split with the company Greenwood said, ‘It has been a very exiting and eventful five and a half years with the team. It has been a period of great change and many challenges, and when I look back at the team, I initially joined and consider the team that I leave now, I am very proud of the progress we have made, and the accomplishments we have shared, not only on the road, but commercially as well. The company now goes into a new phase, and I am ready to explore new opportunities and look for new challenges….’
