Onchan resident Ben Swift is to leave Team Sky at the end of the current cycling season.

Swift, currently a team-mate of Manxman Peter Kennaugh and Castletown resident Ian Stannard in the British outfit, has opted to join Project TJ Sport, formerly known as Lampre Merida, at the start of the 2017 season.

The move brings an end to the Rotherham rider’s seven-year association with Team Sky and means that, of the eight British riders contracted to Sky in their debut year, only Kennaugh, Stannard, Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas remain.
