Kennaugh and Swift extend Team Sky deals

There will be a distinctly Manx flavour to Team Sky for years to come, after Peter Kennaugh and Isle of Man resident Ben Swift both extended their contracts with the British outfit.

That comes on top of the recent news Mark Cavendish has signed for the team.

Twenty-two-year-old Kennaugh, from Onchan, has been with Team Sky since its creation in 2009.

He's described it as the "ideal place to progress", with the management being equally enthusiastic about him, Swift and another young British rider to ink a new deal, Ian Stannard.

Team principal Dave Brailsford says, "Having nurtured them on Great Britain’s Olympic Academy Programme, we knew these guys had bright futures ahead of them, and they have all fulfilled that promise, and more."
