Geraint Thomas has committed his future to the INEOS Grenadiers after signing a new two-year deal, claiming he is "still super motivated".

The 35-year-old will now remain with the team until 2024, having joined when it was formed in 2010.

The Welshman insists that his passion for the sport has not wavered and reveals that he intends to make the most of the time he has left in his professional career.

"I'm still super motivated to work hard and train hard," Thomas said to the INEOS Grenadiers official website. "That's what I love doing. I still really enjoy riding my bike, pushing myself.

"When you can see the finish line of your professional sporting career, you want to make the most of it every day and make it all count."

Despite a difficult end to the last season, Thomas is looking forward to competing and believes he can still hold his own at the highest level.

"Obviously I had a tough end to 2021 but up until the crash at the Tour, I was in the best shape I’d been," Thomas continued. "I'm still very motivated to perform in the biggest races.

"I'll probably look at doing the Ardennes which I've never done properly. That's exciting and new, and hopefully, then go on the Tour to play a big role there.

"I'm super excited about the last few years of my career with the team. It's going to be fun - that’s the main thing.

"People keep asking me what my role will be and obviously I want to keep winning myself, but being a part of a winning team and having fun with some of my best mates is as important - ​​and to do that I'll need to be at my best."
