Team Sky have announced the signing of Lukasz Wisniowski for the 2017 season.

 

The 24-year-old Polish rider joins from Etixx - Quick-Step and will bolster the team's roster for the Spring Classics.

 

Wisniowski has spent his whole professional career with the Belgian outfit but will now join his compatriots Michal Golas and Michal Kwiatkowski in making the switch to Team Sky.

 

Speaking after signing for the team, he said: "I'm really happy to be joining Team Sky. It will be nice to be a part of the team in the Belgian Classics and maybe even in the Grand Tours.

 

"The team is really, really strong. There are so many good riders and I think I can learn a lot with the team. It will be a great experience for me to be on the same team as riders like Chris Froome and Michal Kwiatkowski.

 

"It's also great to be joining two fellow Polish riders, Michal Golas and Kwiato. We are friends, we always train together, and it will be nice to be in the same team again.

 

"When we were at Etixx we'd train together, and even now that we're on different teams, we still train together most of the time."

 

Wisniowski finished second in this season's Three Days of West Flanders and fifth at Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne, and it's those early-season Classics that he is targeting in the future.

 

He added: "I'm an all rounder, but mainly I like the Belgian Classics. They are the kind of races that I really like and I can't wait to be a part of Team Sky for those races, and hope I can take a step forward to improve myself for the Classics. I think that's my future."

 

Fellow Polish rider Golas is looking forward to welcoming Wisniowski into the Team Sky fold.

 

He said: "Lukasz actually raced with my brother when he was younger so I was aware of him for many years before we became team-mates.

 

"He's a huge talent and he will fit perfectly within the team. He's very loyal and does a lot of work for the team leader. He's strong on the flat and on cobbles, so he'll be really valuable in both stage races and Classics."
