Chris Froome renews Team Sky contract

Chris Froome, Tour de France 2013, stage 19

Tour de France winner Chris Froome has renewed his contract with Sky. The team did not report the length of the contract, but principal David Brailsford told Cycling Weekly in July that he wanted a three-year deal, through to the end of 2016.

"This has been an incredible year for me and I'm delighted to finish it off by signing a new contract with Team Sky," Froome said in a press release on Monday. "I've been with this team since the start and I know this is the right place for me to continue to grow as a rider."
