Team Ineos have signed Giro d’Italia champion Richard Carapaz on a three-year deal from next season.

The Ecuadorian rider, 26, will make the move from Movistar after winning his first Grand Tour in June.

He will join a team featuring three other Grand Tour winners – Geraint Thomas, Chris Froome and Egan Bernal, who won this year’s Tour de France.

“This is a great opportunity for me to continue my development and growth as a rider,” said Carapaz.

“The team continues to go from strength to strength, year after year. I already know a lot of the riders on the team and I am really looking forward to working with everyone at Team Ineos from next season.”

Froome, a four-time Tour de France winner, missed this year’s Tour after suffering a series of injuries in an accident at the Criterium du Dauphine in June but the 34-year-old Briton is hopeful of making the team next year in France.
