The INEOS Grenadiers are delighted to announce the re-signing of Carlos Rodríguez until the end of 2027, reaffirming his long-term commitment to the team.

Since becoming a Grenadier in 2020, Carlos has demonstrated extraordinary talent and potential – backing up his gritty performance at the 2022 Vuelta a España with a memorable stage win in his debut at the Tour de France in 2023, finishing an impressive fifth overall.

Carlos’s talent, unwavering racing spirit and professionalism have earned him great affection within the team and the admiration of riders and fans worldwide. The INEOS Grenadiers are excited to have Carlos continue his journey with the team and look forward to supporting him in the pursuit of his many remaining career goals.

Rod Ellingworth, Deputy Team Principal, expressed his enthusiasm for the re-signing, stating, "We are thrilled to have Carlos extend his contract as a Grenadier until 2027. He has shown remarkable growth and dedication during his time with us, and it’s been really rewarding for us to play a part in that. He took the step up from junior to elite level racing with the team with rarely seen maturity, and has really impressed everyone here. We believe he will play a significant role in the team’s future over the coming years - he’s truly world class."

Carlos Rodríguez shared his excitement about re-signing, saying, "This Team has felt like family from the moment I joined. I’ve always felt at home with the people here, they really took me in and made me feel welcome and valued.

"Over the coming years I hope to keep growing, not only as a professional cyclist, but as a person as well, for me everything is about continually learning how to be better. In turn, I hope to achieve good results more frequently and to keep gaining ground on the best riders in the peloton. I think that’s why this is the best place for me to continue to grow and to achieve great results.’

"Since I was a boy I wanted to race the Tour de France; watching the race on TV I looked up to Team Sky hoping that one day I might be a part of this Team. It was so special this year to race the Tour, for the first time, with the team I had always dreamt of being with - I find it hard to describe just how incredible that felt."
