Israel Cycling Academy has announced the signing of Irish rider Dan Martin. This is the most important signing the team has had to date.

Martin is a strong General Classification rider and climber that has more than 20 victories in his palmares, including stage wins in the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España, as well as in races like Liege-Bastogne-Liege and Il Lombardia. "We are thrilled to have Dan Martin join our team," said the team co-owner Sylvan Adams.

"Martin is a bona fide star of our sport and we hope to support him towards many victories next season. Dan is a true professional who will be a great asset to our team. He has proven that he can win a single day as well as stage races. Welcome to Israel Cycling Academy. Looking forward to next year."

The Irish rider welcomes this new change and expects it will make him take a new step in his career. "I feel it's time for me to step into a new and exciting challenge," Martin explained. "Not only will I be able to help this great project reach its exciting goals, but also a great opportunity for me to refresh myself and improve further.

"Israel Cycling Academy has shown huge confidence in me - so together we can create something truly special to improve across the board. I have not reached my peak and I strongly believe that the best is yet to come for ICA and myself."

The rider joins the Israeli team from UAE-Team Emirates -where he has been for the last two seasons- with a two-year contract.
