Published January 6, 2016

WILTON, Conn. (BRAIN) — Team Cycling Academy, Israel's first international pro cycling team, has announced that Cannondale will be its official bike sponsor for 2016.

Following a 2015 inaugural season with 14 wins, Team Cycling Academy will open its 2016 racing campaign in February at Italy's GP Costa degli Etruschi, and will continue with a mix of one-day races throughout Europe, Asia and North America.

"We believe that both Cannondale and Team Cycling Academy share the same values in the sport of cycling. We are a green team in many aspects and believe that this partnership will be a perfect fit," said Ron Baron, Team Cycling Academy's owner. Baron founded the team to enable young talent from Israel and abroad to reach their potential, with emphasis on developing riders cleanly.

Brian Immel, vice president of global marketing at Cannondale, said, "In 2016, as Team Cycling Academy competes in a challenging global calendar, we look to connect with our fans and dealers around a shared passion for elite-level racing and competition."
