The 21-year-old from Pittsford, New York, joined the team at the end of 2021 aged 19, and made an immediate impact winning Brabantse Pijl in Belgium. Sheffield also took stage wins at the Vuelta a Andalucia Ruta Ciclista Del Sol and the Tour of Denmark - where he went on to finish second overall - and finished the year widely touted as one of the peloton's top new prospects.

2023 saw Sheffield’s season begin promisingly but interrupted by injury, finishing second on the general classification at the Tour of Norway. He placed 4th overall three times: at the season-opening Tour Down Under, the Tour of Britain and the CRO race. At all of those events, he also walked away with the award for the best young rider. 

The 2024 season has seen Sheffield pick-up from where he left off last year, as he most recently time-trialed his way into second place on stage four of the ​​Volta ao Algarve, delivering an impressive performance among a very strong field.

Sheffield said that continuing with the team has been an easy decision to make: “Growing up it was a big goal of mine to join this team, with riders that I looked up to, and who were role models for me, so just to be a part of it is a massive accomplishment. And I'm really excited to be part of its future for the coming years.

“The opportunity to be in this environment which has been incredibly supportive - both on and off the bike - is a real privilege and I see it as the perfect place for the next chapter of my career.

“This year is important to me with the Olympic Games in Paris, which is a big goal of mine especially ahead of my home Games in LA in 2028. Another goal this year is to win my first WorldTour race, as well as a stage race, and I would really like to go for one of the Monuments or one of the big Classics, there’s so much to aim for!”

John Allert, CEO of the INEOS Grenadiers said: “Magnus has clearly demonstrated, in his brief career so far, that he’s an enormous talent. He’s delivered some outstanding performances on the bike and has huge scope to grow. That promise is coupled with an attitude and demeanor off the bike that makes him a very impressive young professional. 

“The Grenadiers are focused on developing some of the world’s best talent and Magnus is an example of our commitment to that objective. We’re very excited about the career he has ahead and supporting him in achieving the big ambitions that he has set for himself.”
