Conor Dunne has signed with Israel Cycling Academy for the 2019 season. The Irish champion was forced to look for a new team after the disappearance of Aqua Blue Sport.

It hasn't been an easy period for the rider, who has been waiting for months to get a contract with another team. Israel Cycling Academy signed him for one season and like this, he can remain at the ProContinental level.

The team's Chief Sports Director Kjell Carlstrom welcomed the news of the signing. "The clear goal is to be up there in the hunt in every single race," he said to Irish broadcaster RTE. "We need intelligent, smart and capable riders to support our sprinters and climbers. That is exactly why we could not miss on Conor.

"He has race smarts; he knows when and how to move in the peloton as you can see from his quite successful breakaway attempts rate. Of course, everybody wants to get to a breakaway but few make it. We will need him in breakaways, we will need him to close a breakaway, we will need him to support his teammates in crucial moments. Bottom line, he will be very valuable to us all season long."
