Israel Cycling Academy continue to shore up their roster for next year as they seek a spot on the UCI WorldTour, announcing today that the team re-signed recent Tour of Utah winner Ben Hermans to a two year-deal that will take him through 2021.

The Pro Continental team, which recently signed Dan Martin to a two-year deal from UAE Team Emirates, are reportedly pursuing a path to the 2020 WorldTour by buying out Kathusa-Alpecin and that Swiss team’s WorldTour licence. Re-signing Hermans is a key part of building a top-tier roster.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
