Kennaugh signs new Team Sky deal

 

Manx cycling star Peter Kennaugh is one of ten riders to sign a new deal with Team Sky.

 

The 24-year-old excelled for the British outfit at the Tour de France earlier this year, playing a vital role in helping Chris Froome win the yellow jersey.

 

The deal will take Kennaugh into his fifth year with the team.

 

Performance Manager Rod Ellingworth says, “Everyone is excited to kick things off again in 2014.

 

"We’ve consolidated what is an incredibly strong group of guys over the winter.

 

"The team’s core remains intact and that’s important going forward.

 

“Everyone is committed to keep improving and we always look to provide the best environment for riders to do that.”
