Froome extends Sky contract until 2018

Two-time Tour de France champion Chris Froome has extended his contract with Team Sky until 2018, the British outfit announced on Tuesday at their pre-season training camp in Mallorca.

The 30-year old team leader won cycling’s most prestigious race in 2013 and 2015 and his principle focus this year will be on trying to retain his Tour title and striking gold at the Rio Olympics where he is highly-fancied in the road race and time trial.

The Kenyan-born Brit joined the team in 2010 and acted as support for Bradley Wiggins in the 2012 Tour de France, where he finished second overall to his team-mate.

For the upcoming season Team Sky have also signed Spanish Grand Tour contender Mikel Landa from Astana and former road world champion Michal Kwiatkowski from Quick-Step.
