Tao Geoghegan Hart will embark upon his first Grand Tour on Saturday as the Vuelta a España kicks off, and he says he won't be racing 'just for experience.'

The 23-year-old from London's Hackney joined Team Sky as a stagiaire at the end of the 2015 season, taking a permanent role in 2017 - after choosing to spend another year with American Continental team Axeon-Hagens Berman in the interim.
