Tao Geoghegan Hart has signed a new deal with Team Sky that will see him remain with the team until the end of the 2020 season.

The 23-year-old rode his first Grand Tour earlier this year in La Vuelta a Espana. Elsewhere he claimed a top-five finish at the 2018 Tour of California as well as aiding Geraint Thomas' win in the Criterium du Dauphine back in June.

Speaking about the future, Geoghegan Hart told Team Sky's website: "I definitely want to try and target the Giro for 2019 and go there with everything I learned about Grand Tour racing at the Vuelta, but also the training and build-up to the race.

"Trying to get that right is key as it felt like I didn’t quite get as much from myself performance-wise as I’d hoped in Spain. It’s about continuing in the direction I’ve been going and to keep building forwards.”

Team Sky have been busy this summer after tying down Geraint Thomas until 2021 and bringing back Ben Swift for next season.
