Luke Rowe will remain three years longer in the Sky: . “This team feels like home”

Team Sky has Thursday the contract extension of Luke Rowe announced. The classic hardrijder until the end of 2021 on board with the British WorldTour team.

The 28-year-old Rowe was in 2012 pro with Sky, reed, and since then for no other team. 2018 was not a great year for the Dutch boss. At the beginning of this year he was still recovering from a heavy femurs and kuitbeenbreuk, while he was at the european CHAMPIONSHIPS in Glasgow beginning of August, again a break in the handwortelbeentje of his right wrist down. He rode with that injury a few weeks, but that was the end of August to end his season. In between, helped Rowe in July Geraint Thomas on his first Tourzege.

In the past, took Rowe himself toptiennoteringen in the Tour of Flanders (fifth in 2016) and Paris-Roubaix (eighth in 2015).

“I row for Sky since the beginning of my career and I feel like part of the furniture here,” he explained on the website of the team. “It was an easy decision to sign. This team feels like home. Sky gave me last year also very well supported during my rehabilitation. It was a huge advantage at that time for this team to ride. If I have one year before end of contract had been, I had a big problem. This year, I was able to show my level again.”
