Richie Porte has joined Ineos Grenadiers on a two-year deal. The Australian spent four years at the team when they raced under the title of Team Sky before switching to BMC Racing and then Trek-Segafredo.

The 35-year-old, who took third overall at the Tour de France, had drawn interest from Israel Start-Up Nation for 2021, in a move that  would have seen him link up with his former teammate and friend Chris Froome.
