Who are Team Ineos?

They were formally known as Team Sky (between 2010 and 2019).
The team is based at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester with a logistics base in Deinze, Belgium and they are managed by Sir Dave Brailsford.

Who is INEOS and why was there some controversy?
Ineos are a multinational chemicals company owned by Jim Ratcliffe.
