Israel Cycling Academy has signed Ben Hermans for two more years. The Belgian made a move to the Israeli team in 2018.

The Belgian signed with Israel Cycling Academy from BMC Racing Team in 2018 and now the team has extended his contract until at least 2021. In these two years with the team, Hermans has taken the overall victories in the Tour of Utah and the Tour of Austria.

"I enjoyed good two years with Israel Cycling Academy," said the rider. "I came here to get opportunities to win and with the support of the team, I was able to do that.

"This team has raised it’s level year after year and I am certain it will continue doing so. That is one of the main reasons I decided to stay: To continue growing and winning. I am confident I can do my part."

Hermans is also looking forward to Dan Martin's arrival, who has also signed a two-year contract with the team. "I am looking forward to riding with him and do well together in some classics and stage races," he commented. "This team is enjoying a very good image and many riders want to join us. There is no wonder why."

The manager of the team, Kjell Carlstrom, welcomes this contract extension. "Ben has shown in the last two years the true professional he is with the attention to detail and always being ready to race. We are delighted to have him for two more years and we can continue to count on him for getting results in a lot of races."
