Dani Navarro and Jenthe Biermans have signed deals with Israel Cycling Academy for the 2020 season.

The Israeli team has added two more riders from the now-extinct Katusha-Alpecin, Navarro and Biermans. The Spaniard will take to the team his experience as a super domestique to some of the biggest names in the peloton, while the Belgian is a talented young all-rounder who can continue his development in the formation.

"I had to go through many months of not knowing what will happen next," explained Navarro. "Since May, we were living under that cloud. When the news lastly came that I will get the chance to continue with Israel Cycling Academy, it was time for happiness and tranquillity.

"I followed Israel Cycling Academy from afar and my impression is that they give their riders the chance to race with great support and calm. This is what I am looking for now: Enjoy cycling again and to reward the Israeli team with what I got. And I believe I have plenty to offer. I endured a difficult year with a crash in the Giro d'Italia that cost me six crucial weeks. But now, I am healthy and ready.

"I am a climber, and I used to work helping riders like Alberto Contador, Lance Armstrong, Andreas Kloden, Roberto Heras, and many more. Now I can offer the same for Dan Martin and Ben Hermans on the mountains and overall be strong for the team."

Biermans also welcomed this news. "I hope to keep growing and take the next step in my development and continuing with the positive path forward since my second part of the season this year," he said. "As a junior, I became a Belgian champion, and I won with this beautiful jersey the Tour of Flanders for juniors.

"Here my love for the classics started. As a young kid, this opened my eyes how big cycling and the classics are in Belgium. And then, In the U23 category, I was two times second in Paris-Roubaix. The classics are always my focus, and I hope to be an outstanding rider in the classic team of Israel cycling in 2020."
