Team Sky has confirmed the signing of Ivan Sosa. The rider will be the fifth Colombian to join the British team.

Despite being linked to Trek-Segafredo last August, Team Sky confirms the rumours that have been running for several months. The Colombian has chosen the British team to step up to the WorldTour level.

The 21-year-old is one of the most promising riders of his generations and had an impressive 2018 season with results that include a victory at the Vuelta a Burgos and stage wins at races like the Adriatica Ionica Race and the Sibiu Cycling Tour with his former team Androni Giocattoli-Sidermec.

Sosa joined the rest of his Team Sky teammates at the first training camp in Mallorca. "I am really happy to be here," the Colombian commented. "I am here to keep improving as a rider and while it will be a learning process for me during my early days with the team, I believe I will fit into this group well and race to my full potential over the coming years.

"Having Egan (Bernal, fellow countryman) here is a big boost for me, he is a good friend and someone I know very well. Having him and a few other South Americans in the team will be really beneficial for me."

The rider already had the chance of meeting the rest of the team's riders and shared his first impression of them. "Everyone has been really welcoming to me," he explained. "There is a nice mix of youth and experience within this team and they’ve all helped me settle in.

"Training has been really good and the DS’s and coaches have been great with me too. We’re all looking forward to the new season and the chance to build on the team’s successes of 2018."
