Canyon//Sram has announced the signing of two Israeli talents for the 2019 season. Omer Shapira and Rotem Gafinovitz will be joining the team for the upcoming season.

Shapira is a two-time Israel national road champion and has a past in mountain bike. "I’m feeling very excited and motivated for 2019. I think Canyon//Sram Racing is the best place that I could ask to be," she commented. "I’m looking forward to the racing and spending time with the team. I believe it will help me grow further as a rider and a person.

"I want to be part of the team’s efforts in races and I want to feel a real part of this group of people off the bike. I see my role as supporting my teammates in many big races and helping the team achieve success in the hilly stage races."

Gafinovitz is the current Israel national time trial champion and looks forward to joining the team. "I’m really, really excited to be part of the CANYON//SRAM family in the upcoming season," she said. "I see it as a great opportunity and a chance to develop and learn to be a better bike racer and human.

"I’m looking forward to sharing some great moments with the team and I’m excited to see what happens. My main goal of the season is to make a big step forward to make 2019 an extraordinary year!"
