Dennis' decision comes after Bahrain-Merida terminated his contract a year early in September, not long before the 29-year-old retained his time trial title at the World Championships in Yorkshire.

A reported dispute over equipment ultimately led to his move to the British team, one Dennis labelled "a dream of mine since turning professional."

"Watching on from afar, I’ve always been a huge fan of the team – ever since the early years," he said.

"It’s always been a goal of mine to ride for this team, so to finally fulfil that dream is a brilliant feeling and a huge honour.

"I already feel a connection to this team – a team that really believes in innovation, especially in time trialling, which is obviously something I’m hugely passionate about.

"I hope I can do the team colours proud over the course of my time here."

Dennis will join his new teammates at training camp this week and is set to make his debut on home soil in 2020.

Ineos team principal Sir Dave Brailsford hailed Dennis "a world class talent", adding: "Rohan is one of the best and most-exciting time trial riders in modern cycling and we are very pleased to have signed him."
