This season’s Tour de France champion Geraint Thomas has just signed another long-term contract with Team Sky.
The British rider who was able to grab the biggest cycling title in the world after three amazing, challenging and impressive weeks in France, has decided to stay with his team and not join a new family even though he received several offers.

Team Sky updated his contract for another three years and kept Thomas, who has been part of the Squad since its conception in 2009, home.
Bringing Major Trophies
Since nine years ago Thomas has been able to bring home several high-authority trophies including Paris-France’s title, Criterium du Dauphine and this season, Tour de France’s one.
Thomas is now the third British cyclist to ever win Tour de France alongside his teammate Chris Froome (four Tour de France titles), and Sir Bradley Wiggins.
“I’ve been super happy with the team from the start and it has really worked for me. I’ve known Dave since I was 17 so it does feel like a family,” Thomas told Sky Sports News a day ago.
“When other good teams show interest you have to at least hear what they have got to say, out of respect. But I am happy here and another three years is great. It’s certainly working and long may it continue.”
