Team Sky have announced the signing of the former Ecuadorian champion Jhonatan Narvaez.
The 21-year-old joins the British outfit from Quick-Step Floors after just one season.
Narvaez told Team Sky's website “I characterise myself as a bit of an all-rounder and next season one of my goals is to try and develop further so I can be in a position to help the team and also win races.
“I am 21 years old and I know on this team I will have great support to improve myself and grow as a rider.”
Narvaez won the Ecuadorian national championships in 2017 and finished second in the race this season.
Sky also announced a new five-year deal for young Colombian Egan Bernal, who was a stand out performer this year particular in the Tour de France.

Team Sky have made a major statement of intent by tying down their bright young Colombian talent Egan Bernal on a five-year deal.
The length of the contract is highly unusual in the volatile world of professional cycling, showing Sky's faith both in Bernal and their own future in the sport.
Bernal, 21, has just completed his first season with the British WorldTour team, winning both the Colombia Oro y Paz and the Tour of California before helping Geraint Thomas to victory in the Tour de France in July.
"I'm very happy to sign a new contract with Team Sky," Bernal said.
"It feels like a new stage in my life. I know five years is a long time and that it's not too common in cycling, but the team has been great for me. They offer me everything I could want and I'm excited about the future."
Team principal Sir Dave Brailsford said he was convinced Bernal is a future Grand Tour winner, and that Sky is the best place for him to develop under the wing of both Thomas and Chris Froome.
"This is an important moment in the development of the team," Brailsford said. "A five-year deal in cycling is exceptional, but Egan is an exceptional talent."

Tour de France champion Geraint Thomas has signed a new three-year contract with Team Sky.
The British squad announced that the 32-year-old will stick with the team he joined from their inception in 2010, until 2021.
Thomas told teamsky.com: "I'm pleased it's sorted - and delighted to be staying with the team."
Page 2: 15:37The announcement was made ahead of the final stage of the Tour of Britain, which Thomas has been riding this week.
The Cardiff rider has long been a key lieutenant for Team Sky, but succeeded Chris Froome as Tour champion in July as he realised his own potential in the sport's biggest race.
"It really is one big happy family where my relationship with Team Sky is concerned, so I couldn't be more delighted," Thomas added.
"It's been a great journey for me with Team Sky and obviously the last few months have been crazy.
"It's working really well for me here and I'm excited about what's still to come."
