Geraint Thomas signs new three-year deal with Team Sky

9 Sep

Tour de France champion Geraint Thomas has signed a new three-year contract with Team Sky.

The British squad announced that the 32-year-old will stick with the team he joined from their inception in 2010, until 2021.

Thomas told teamsky.com: “I’m pleased it’s sorted – and delighted to be staying with the team.”

The announcement was made ahead of the final stage of the Tour of Britain, which Thomas has been riding this week.

The Cardiff rider has long been a key lieutenant for Team Sky, but succeeded Chris Froome as Tour champion in July as he realised his own potential in the sport’s biggest race.

“It really is one big happy family where my relationship with Team Sky is concerned, so I couldn’t be more delighted,” Thomas added.

“It’s been a great journey for me with Team Sky and obviously the last few months have been crazy.

“It’s working really well for me here and I’m excited about what’s still to come.”
