Connor Swift has agreed a two-year contract extension with the team until the end of 2026.

The 2018 British National Road Race champion joined the team in 2023 and has quickly proved himself to be a highly-valued, trusted and loyal Grenadier.

Most recently, Connor played a star supporting role at the Giro d'Italia where Geraint Thomas finished third overall. His versatility and strong performances in both one-day classics and stage races means that Swift has quickly become an integral part of the team.

Swift said: “I feel like I have settled into the team nicely over the last couple years and I always wanted to stay here. I enjoy being part of a team that always strives to win every race and has that all-in approach every time we line up.

“My goals for the next two seasons are to have strong and successful Spring Classics campaigns, be part of the Team’s Tour de France squad, and look to get that stripy nationals jersey back on my shoulders again.

“They are goals that I know will push and drive me, and if there’s one thing I’ve learnt from being with my Grenadier teammates, it’s never give up and always believe in yourself. I’m looking forward to seeing what the next two seasons hold.”

INEOS Grenadiers Performance Director, Scott Drawer, said: “Connor’s proved himself to be an exceptional team player and really grown in his time with the team. He’s taken his skills and stepped up a level at this year’s Giro d’Italia helping the team fight for the GC. His versatility also means that under the right circumstances he can also challenge for his own opportunities which is exciting.

“We believe that Connor is just coming into his prime as a bike rider and that’s really exciting for us, as well as for him. We are ambitious for the coming years and building for success and Connor is going to play an integral part as part of that process.”
