Rod Ellingworth will be leaving Team Sky to join Bahrain-Merida from next season.

Ellingworth, who was a founder member of the team upon our formation in 2010, informed senior management of his decision earlier this season.

He will remain with the team for the immediate future to ensure an amicable and smooth transition.

Everyone at the team thanks Rod for his immense service and contribution during his time with us.

The team will be making no further comment.
