“The time has come for me to move on,” Ellingworth said in a statement. “I have thoroughly enjoyed the chance to lead this team. There has been some fantastic momentum, and I feel I leave the team in a strong position. We’ve worked well together in this global pandemic to keep racing and have achieved some fantastic results.”
“We’ve worked well together in this global pandemic to keep racing and have achieved some fantastic results,” Ellingworth said. “The team has pulled together and tried hard to keep everyone safe. The team were united through tough times, and it was a pleasure to be part of it. One of the highlights for me was achieving a fourth place in the general classification at the Tour de France.”
Ellingworth came aboard this season following several years working with British Cycling and Team Sky.
His arrival at Bahrain McLaren came with a significant roster overhaul, as the team lost Vincenzo Nibali and Rohan Dennis and signed Mikel Landa, Wout Poels, and Mark Cavendish.
