Giro d’Italia winner Richard Carapaz to join Team Ineos for 2020

Giro d’Italia champion, Richard Carapaz will combine Team Ineos by the beginning of the 2020 season.
The Ecuadorian has agreed a three-year manage the team and adds to an already impressive stable.
Team main Sir Dave Brailsford – whose team have won seven of the previous eight Tour de France titles – said:”He is obviously a wonderful climber but also has great flexibility as he showed at the Giro earlier this past season.
“He’s still relatively young and I don’t have any doubt that he could develop and improve even farther at Team Ineos.”
Carapaz became the first rider to win a Grand Tour when he succeeded in the Giro.
He explained:”I am very enthusiastic about joining the group. I feel that this is a superb chance for me to continue my development and growth as a rider, working year after year.
“I think I’ll fit into this group well and race to my entire potential within the coming years. I would like to achieve some fantastic triumphs to get Team Ineos.”
Meanwhile, two-time grand tour champion Nairo Quintana is currently joining Arkea-Samsic on a three-year thing.
Even the Giro, who won the Giro d’Italia at 2016 in the Vuelta and 2014, has completed runner-up in the Tour de France.
