Swift heads back to Sky

Onchan rider announces 'new' team

Ben Swift has announced he's heading back to Team Sky next season.

The Onchan-based cyclist spent seven years with Sky, before riding for UAE Team Emirates for the last two.

He'd hoped to step up into a leadership role, and out of the shadows of the likes of Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas, but his time with the Italian-based outfit was dogged by injury and a loss of form.
