Chris Froome has dedicated some grateful words to Sky after the company announced its withdrawal from the team's project at the end of 2019.

Earlier in the day, Sky announced that at the end of 2019 it will put an end to the ownership and sponsorship of the team. The four-time Tour de France winner has dedicated a few words to this news in his social media.

"First off, a massive thank you to Sky," he wrote. "They have been brilliant partners and it has been an incredible journey we have shared together. They have helped me personally every step of the way and I will always be grateful for their support.

"And we are not finished yet by any means. Everyone at Team Sky has got big ambitions for 2019 and this news had made us more determined than ever to make them happen."

The rider has high hopes for what is coming for the team after 2019. "I cannot predict the future, but I can say with absolute certainty this is a really special team," Froome commented. "We plan to be together in 2020 if at all possible and we will all be doing everything we can to help make that happen, in different colours with a new partner, but with the same values, focus and desire to win.

"And finally to the fans - your support has always mattered most to us and the messages we have all received today have meant a lot. We look forward to seeing you on the road in January."
