Confusion as Philip Deignan’s name is ‘omitted’ from Team Sky’s Tour contingent

Philip Deignan 0814There's some confusion over the involvement of Team Sky's Irish contingent in this year's Tour de France.

With the 9-man team set to be declared on Monday, Sky posted a shortlist of eleven names on their site this morning that included neither Nicolas Roche nor Letterkenny's Philip Deignan.

The post was swiftly removed, with many shocked at Roche and Deignan's absences.
