Connor Swift has become the third Briton confirmed to participate in the Tour de France 2020, in support of Nairo Quintana.

The 24-year-old has continued to deliver his potential, having won the UK Nationals in 2018 and rising to join ProTeam Arkéa-Samsic last season.

Since joining the France squad, Swift has become a key driver supporting Quintana in stage races, helping him secure victory in the 2020 Tour de La Provence and Paris-Nice.

Quintana and Arkéa-Samsic will focus on the overall classification of the Tour, after the Colombian joined the Movistar squad at the start of the season.

Sports director at Arkéa, Sébastien Hinault, said: “Clément Russo and Connor Swift will discover the Tour de France and the three-week races, but both have shown their strength during this season in the big races. Connor on the Paris-Nice roads protecting Nairo during the stages, and Clément doing a very heavy job in favor of his leaders on the roads of the recent Critérium du Dauphiné.
