Kennaugh selected for Vuelta a Espana

Manxman to support Froome

Peter Kennaugh has been selected for Team Sky for the Vuelta a Espana, which starts on Saturday.

The Manxman will line up alongside the likes of Michal Kwiatkowski, Leopold Koenig, Christian Knees and Ian Boswell as the supporting cast for triple Tour de France winner Chris Froome.

Kennaugh has been chosen after an impressive sixth-place finish at the recent Vuelta a Burgos, which saw the 27-year-old continue his comeback from a broken collarbone.

He made his Grand Tour debut for Team Sky at the 2010 Vuelta a Espana.
