Giro d'Italia 2019 winner Richard Carapaz is apparently set to move from Movistar to Ineos, with a two-year deal said to be announced on August 1, when the transfer market opens.

The Ecuadorian took his biggest victory and first Grand Tour win at the Giro d'Italia earlier in the season, beating Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) by just over a minute.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
