Luke Rowe signs three-year contract extension with Team Sky

Luke Rowe has agreed a contract extension that will keep him at Team Sky for the next three seasons. The Welshman’s new deal will expire at the end of the 2021 campaign.

Rowe has spent the entirety of his professional career with Team Sky since he stepped up to WorldTour level in 2012. He has established himself as one of the squad’s leaders in the cobbled Classics and has been on the Tour de France team in each of the past four years.

“I’ve been with Sky since the start of my career and I really feel a part of the furniture here,” Rowe said in a statement released by the team.


“It’s been seven years and this deal will take me through to 10 years with Team Sky, so it was an easy decision. This is home.”

Rowe’s 2018 season seemed at risk when he broke both the tibia and fibula in his right leg in a water rafting accident in August 2017, but he made a remarkable recovery and returned to action at the Abu Dhabi Tour in February.

The 28-year-old proceeded to line out in the cobbled Classics and was later part of the Sky team that helped his fellow Welshman Geraint Thomas to overall victory at the Tour de France. Rowe brought the curtain down on his season in August after sustaining a fractured scaphoid at the European Championships in Glasgow.
