News: Rowe extends contract at Ineos

Team INEOS are delighted to confirm that Luke Rowe has extended his contract with the Team for the next four seasons. Rowe joins Tour de France winner Egan Bernal in signing until the end of 2023.

Luke explained: “Obviously this new contract extension shows a lot of commitment from myself and the Team. I turned pro here; I’ve been here from day one – and now I’m as excited as ever to be part of this new chapter with INEOS.

“For me, this Team is the number one in the world for looking after their riders and that is a big factor in me committing my future to Team INEOS. It’s a special environment to win bike races, which is something we’re constantly striving for.”

Rowe is uniquely positioned to help the young riders on the Team’s roster, having grown up with the Team over the last eight years. The 29 year old added: “I think working with the young guys is a big part of why the Team has committed to me for another four years. If you look through the riders we’ve got in the Team, there’s a long list of young guys who are growing and developing into riders at the very top of their game. To work with these young guys is something I really enjoy – trying to pass on what I can to help guide them on their way up in the sport.

“We’re a British Team, we’ve got a British backer, a British boss, and a strong core of British riders. Two of our leaders in the Team – Froomey and G – are British, but now we’ve taken on a strong South American contingent. For me, it’s a case of bouncing off everyone and being that middleman between all of them. I think us Brits and South Americans have quite a similar mentality, which a lot of people might not realise. We’re a humble group of riders, there’s no big egos, and I think that’s a big reason why we work so well together. That was another big factor for me in signing this extension.”
