Israel Start-Up Nation’s Conti-team, Israel Cycling Academy, will have a strong and highly talented roster for the 2022-season with a clear ambition of becoming one of the most important development teams in the world.
This year, the team took two impressive victories against the established professionals with Alastair Mackellar winning stage 2 of GP Internacional Torres Vedras and Mason Hollyman soloing to victory on the mountain top finish on stage 5 of Volta a Portugal.
The ICA riders also gained experience from riding with the WorldTour team in selected races throughout the season. Something that will continue to occur next year.
After adding additional firepower to the team ahead of the new season, Israel Cycling Academy will include the following riders in 2022:
• Jakub Boucek (20, CZE)
• Lahav Davidzon (21, ISR)
• Marco Frigo (21, ITA)
• Derek Gee (24, CAN)
• Edo Goldstein (21, ISR)
• Mason Hollyman (21, GBR)
• Cole Kessler (18, USA)
• Oded Kogut (20, ISR)
• Alastair Mackellar (19, AUS)
• Aviv Peretz (18, ISR)
• Riley Pickrell (20, CAN)
• Nadav Reisberg (20, ISR)
• Rotem Tene (20, ISR)
• Roy Weinberg (21, ISR)
The new head sports director of Israel Cycling Academy, Gordon Fraser, explains the team’s goals for 2022:
“We will continue the very important work of graduating Israeli talent up to the WorldTour. It has been a couple of years since the last one joined ISN and we want to change that now. We want to win races with team commitment and chemistry and become one of the most productive and important development teams in the world.”
