Geraint Thomas has signed a two-year contract extension with Ineos Grenadiers, meaning the Welshman will remain a professional until he is at least 39. It is likely to be his last contract as a professional rider.

The 37-year-old finished second at the Giro d'Italia in May after losing time to Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) on the penultimate day, and has been Ineos' most consistent Grand Tour rider in recent years, finishing third at the Tour de France in 2022.
