Israel Start-Up Nation has confirmed its roster for 2021 and has announced a training camp in January in Israel.

The team has confirmed 32 riders for the 2021 season coming from 17 countries, including nine new riders and headed by four-time winner of the Tour de France Chris Froome. The formation completed its largest roster to date with two-year extensions with Canadian Guillaime Boivin and Swiss rider Reto Hollenstein.

"Our line up for next year is significantly enhanced, yet it keeps the core group together," said the team's co-owner Sylvan Adams. "We plan to be extremely competitive in the biggest races, including Grand Tours, Monuments, and Classics. Our pre-season training camp will provide an opportunity to bring everyone together and bond as a unit. Exciting times ahead."

Although the Covid-19 pandemic will make the usual Israel training camp, the formation is determined to make it happen. "It will be fascinating to see how well we can perform up against the established big teams," said Team Manager Kjell Carlstrom.

"We have a balanced roster in the sense that we can get results in all types of races, but our strongest chances will be at stage races. We are still underdogs for overall General Classification (race leadership) victories, but we can be in the mix for General Classification podiums. In the next few weeks, we'll sit down and establish a game plan for that."
