Team Ineos Grenadiers has announced the signing of Adam Yates on a two-year deal.

The British rider will ride for the team from January 2021 after being in the team currently known as Mitchelton-Scott since he started his career in 2014. The rider is a General Classification rider that has taken victories at the UAE Tour, the Tour of Turkey, the CRO race as well as topping the young classification at the Tour de France in 2016 and finishing in the fourth position of the race.

"The prospect of riding for a British team is one that I am extremely excited about," said the Briton. "I've witnessed the rise of cycling in the UK during my career and I think this has been spurred on by success of British riders and this team.

"It is an exciting opportunity and one that I feel has come at the right time. My results in week-long races and one day races have been really solid but I would like to take that consistency to Grand Tour racing with the INEOS Grenadiers and see where it takes me."

Ineos Granadiers Team Principal Sir Dave Brailsford welcomed the news. "I'm really delighted that Adam is finally joining the team," he affirmed. "It feels like the timing is just right as he enters the prime of his career, and we embark on a new era as the Ineos Grenadiers.

"As a global team with a British heart, Adam's no-nonsense British character is a perfect fit. He knows how to win and his gritty, determined and resilient approach are exactly the attributes we are looking to foster as we assemble the new Ineos Grenadiers to be built on purpose."
