Michal Golas has extended his contract with Team Ineos for one more year. The former Polish champion arrived to the formation in 2016.

The 35-year-old will extend his stay at the British team for one more year, where he will keep using his experience to the advantage of the entire formation. "This contract extension is a big boost of motivation and I'm really thankful that the team showed confidence in me," Golas explained. "I've found a team where I know my place and my role. I still have a couple of years to ride and I can still show my good form. I'm thinking about finishing my career on this team.

"I have some experience and we now have a really strong group of young guys. Most of them are more than 10 years younger than me. I try to help them out as much as I can on the road, but also from the other side. Sometimes I try to give them some advice and if they want to listen, I'm happy."

The rider has been a key part of some impressive overall victories in 2019, at the Tour of Poland -where Pavel Sivakov took the win, and the Tour of Yorkshire -won by Chris Lawless. "I think Yorkshire was one of the best races this year," Golas said. "It's a great atmosphere and we had a nice group there. It was something special.

"The team changed colours and it opened a new chapter in our history – we wanted to start it with a big bang. The young guys maybe didn't really believe we could do it but on the last stage, we played it really smart. We showed our strength as a team and everything played out perfectly."
