Former British road race champion Connor Swift has signed a two-year contract extension with Arkéa-Samsic, which will keep him at the French ProTeam until at least the end of 2022. Swift made a mid-season move to the team in May last year from British domestic team Madison Genesis, and said on Wednesday that the team "has big ambitions for the future, and I'm looking forward to being part of this journey".

Swift was the British road race champion when he joined the team last year – the current champion is his cousin, Ben Swift, of Team Ineos – and was taken on to provide cover for the injured Robert Wagner to form part of André Greipel's sprint train.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
