Following Saturday's statements of Chris Froome about Egan Bernal, Team Sky has confirmed the signing of the Colombian talent.

The winner of the 2017 Tour de L'Avenir is set to join the WorldTour formation in 2018 after an impressive season that caught the attention of the British team.

"I always dreamed of being with this team. I never thought the opportunity to join would come this fast, so to sign for Team Sky is a dream come true," said the rider. "My first goal with Team Sky is to learn. I want to learn from my teammates and take advantage of the experience that there is in the team.

"I’m excited to be joining Team Sky and I want to contribute as much as I can."

Before the victory at the Tour de L'Avenir, Bernal finished in the top 10 of the Tour of the Alps and the Settimana Coppi e Bartali.

"Egan showed really good things last year at Coppi e Bartali and was very impressive for such a young rider," said Sports Director Dario Cioni. "He was consistent, and he achieved a lot of good results last year. He’s continued that into this season and has put in some really strong performances.

"He has shown his ability, nowhere more so than with his performances at the Tour de L'Avenir. We are sure we can help him develop over the next years into someone who can become a leader for stage races."
