Geraint Thomas has extended his contract with Ineos Grenadiers

Geraint Thomas will continue his career at Ineos Grenadiers. Obviously, Thomas believes in his decisions, and that he had no dilemmas about the new (old) environment. Thomas has been in the team him since 2010, and he had a fairly successful career with the Grenadiers.

He started well this season, but the crash on the Tour ruined everything he did Geraint will extend the contract for two years, and he is extremely happy about that.
"Obviously I had a tough end to 2021 but up until the crash at the Tour, I was in the best shape I’d been.

I’m still very motivated to perform in the biggest races," Thomas said, as quoted by cyclingnews "I’ll probably look at doing the Ardennes, which I’ve never done properly. That’s exciting and new, and hopefully then go on the Tour to play a big role there."


Late years

He is still motivated to advance in his career and wants to help his team achieve as much success as possible "I'm super excited about the last few years of my career with the team. It’s going to be fun - that’s the main thing," Thomas said.

"People keep asking me what my role will be and obviously I want to keep winning myself, but being a part of a winning team and having fun with some of my best mates is as important – and to do that I’ll need to be at my best."

The team has undergone major changes and many young cyclists are on the roster "The team has evolved a lot over the past 12 years. The vibe in Mallorca [training] camp compared to recent years feels different with lots of young, new guys and fresh faces," said Thomas.

"Everyone is excited about going forwards as a team, closer together. I want to play a key role in that." There have been many rumors that Dave Brailsford could become the new director of sports, and the team still includes Rod Ellingworth who is the deputy team principal.

"G has been with us since the start. He’s won the biggest races, mentored younger riders, been a brilliant ambassador for the sport and, throughout, helped to inspire countless people to get on their bikes," Ellingworth said.

"We know - and he knows - that there is still more to come. He is hungry for more success at the highest level. Next season is going to be a real fight. The competition is stronger than ever. We are going all in as a team and G is going to be a big part of that for us."
