WorldTour team Israel Start-Up Nation announced on Monday that Canada's James Piccoli has signed for two additional years with the team, taking him through the 2021-22 and 2022-23 seasons. Piccoli first joined the team last Fall. Canadians Alex Cataford and Guillaume Boivin also race for the team.
"I have a number of goals with this team," he said in a team statement. "First is having fun and enjoying what I love most. Number two is to be a really good bike rider and with the company of the riders in this team I know that I can develop more, help them in races and eventually be able to do what they are able to do: winning the biggest races in the world.
"But third, and that is the main reason that I race, is to make my parents proud. My dad and my mom are my biggest fans, my dad is the biggest ISN-fan and is at least as happy with the extension than I am myself. My mom and dad are coming over everywhere to see me racing, all over the globe. They have seen the whole journey and I would not have been a cyclist without them. I owe my career, now another two years on WorldTour level with ISN, to them."
