Neilands to race two more years with ISN

Israel Start-Up Nation continues with Krists Neilands. The Latvian rider, who has been with ISN since 2017, came to a new agreement that will see him ride for the Israeli team for another two years.

Team Manager Kjell Carlström says he is very happy that Israel Start-Up Nation could offer Neilands all the facilities he needs to keep developing and performing. “Neilands has been constantly progressing and is a rider that can perform on both short stage races and one-day races. Furthermore, he is an excellent teammate.”

Neilands is excited about his extension with ISN. “I feel very comfortable here, and I feel I mean something to the team,” he says.

The Latvian: “When Kjell and Rik (Verbrugghe) asked me to meet and discuss my future, I found out that they have some great plans for me at ISN. The decision was very simple after that meeting.”

Carlström: “We are very happy he chose to continue with us, especially as he has been part of the team for so long. We are looking forward to Krists continuing his development and reaching new victories with us in the years to come.”

Neilands: “I feel that ISN is growing every year. I want to be part of this journey for much longer.”
