Luke Rowe signs new three year contract with Team Sky

It's not quite the five they gave Egan Bernal, but further demonstrates the team's intention to keep racing for years to come

Luke Rowe has signed a new contract with Team Sky that will see him remain with the British WorldTour squad until at least the end of the 2021 season. Including this year, Rowe has already ridden seven seasons with Team Sky.

Earlier this week it was announced that potential future Grand Tour star Egan Bernal had been tied in for the next five seasons with the team, a huge contract for such a young rider.

This, and Rowe's three-year deal, show that the team have every intention of continuing beyond the current deal with their title sponsors.

Upheaval at Sky's parent company and the departure of James Murdoch who had been key to the team's continued and sizeable budget had raised questions about the longevity of Dave Brailsford's project.

During his time at Team Sky, Rowe has been part of the Tour de France winning squad on all four occasions that he's ridden the race, quickly taking on the role of road captain.

He's also been given the chance to ride for himself in the Spring Classics but a big victory still eludes the 28-year-old.
