Israel-Premier Tech

il flag

Israel-Premier Tech was founded in 2015 with the aim of providing a place for Israeli cyclists to develop, but the team has gone through many different eras in its relatively short history.

In 2017, the team began to grow, joining the ProConti ranks, and then in 2020 they joined the WorldTour with a truly international roster. They enjoyed three years this level, which brought them wins at the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia and the arrival of Grand Tour superstar Chris Froome, but at the end of 2022, they found themselves relegated back to ProConti level.

As the issue was points rather than budget, the team have retained a relatively strong roster for 2023, though they certainly have a notable contingent of riders who are in the latter stages of their career: Sep Vanmarcke, Simon Clarke, Daryl Impey. Their young talent comes in the form of Corbin Strong, Matthew Riccitello and Mason Hollyman, who will be hoping to score enough points to see the team promoted again at the end of the current licences cycle.

Eruptions Up The Puy De Dôme! | Tour De France 2023 Highlights - Stage 9

Highlights from stage 9 of the Tour de France 2023. The iconic Puy de Dôme returns to the Tour de France for the first time in 35 years. Starting in Saint-Léonard-de-Noblat, the stage is 182.4km long with 3,611m of climbing. The final climb up Puy de Dôme (13.3km at 7.7%) is very narrow and devilishly steep, averaging almost 12% for the final 4km.
