"This is my 12th year with the INEOS Grenadiers, and it has been an amazing journey with the team, there are so many good memories," the 34-year-old Italian has said in reaction to the news on the social media pages of the British-based team.
"I have always enjoyed our approach to racing, we do it with style, you always have this feeling of being part of success, it’s in this team’s culture!" Puccio continues. "I’m happy to continue with the Team and look forward to seeing us work together and come back to winning Grand Tours again. It’s always a pleasure to ride in our jersey because the fans always expect a big performance from our team!"
Puccio joins the likes of Brandon Rivera, Kim Heiduk, Luke Rowe, Laurens de Plus, Ben Swift, Carlos Rodriguez and Geraint Thomas in renewing with the team for at least next season.
