Jonathan Castroviejo has extended his contract with Team Ineos for more two years. The rider arrived in the British team in 2018.

The five-time time trial Spanish champion has spent the last two seasons in Ineos and he has found his place in the squad. "I’m really happy to be staying with the Team," said Castroviejo. "I’ve enjoyed two brilliant years here and to be a part of two Tour de France winning teams has been special.

"I wanted to take the next step when I joined the Team and I feel like I have done that. Now I’m really settled here. It has been a great environment for me to keep improving as a cyclist and I’m looking forward to playing my part alongside our exciting group of young riders."

Castroviejo has helped Geraint Thomas and Egan Bernal take the titles at the Tour de France and this year he extended his time trial reign in Spain. Xabi Artetxe, the rider's coach, commented about his impact on Ineos.

"We knew what type of rider Jonathan was before we signed him, but I think I speak for everyone on the team when I say that Castro has surpassed our expectations," Artetxe explained. "He is one of the most professional bike riders I’ve worked with and he has been exemplary in his two years with us.

"He has enhanced his reputation as one of the most consistent time triallists in the world and he has quickly become a pivotal member of our Tour de France team. It’s great that Castro will be staying for another two years."
