Israel Cycling Academy and De Rosa Partnership extended for another season. On 2019 season the riders of the team will ride the bike made in Cusano Milanino. Cristiano De Rosa: “ICA is the most important team for us”. ICA’s Sylvan Adams: “De Rosa are not our sponsor – they are family”
DESIGN AND MODELS
The main bike model will also be for the 2019 PROTOS, which represents the racing character of the Italian brand, with some improvements of the frame, now lighter and stiffer, with a i-modular carbon fiber saddle. “The Protos 2019 model is definitely the best product in our history, we have been working on it for two years and now it’s finally a reality” Cristiano De Rosa admits.
As for the NIPPO Vini Fantini Faizanè team, also the PROTOS supplied to the Israel Cycling Academy will be characterized by an exclusive touch that makes it unique: the team logo will be engraved on the top frame with 3D lettering.
ICA riders will also use other 2 types of De Rosa models: sprinters will often use the Aero SK Pininfarina, in the blue color, and the TT-03 model for the time trials.
“Israel Cycling Academy became the most important team for us” declared De Rosa general Manager Cristiano De Rosa, “for me personally, ICA represents one of most exciting projects I have witnessed in my professional career. The team inspired so many during 2018. It’s an honour to continue our relationship with the team on its journey in 2019”.
ICA co-owner Sylvan Adams was equally enthusiastic “I am pleased that ICA will continue our partnership with the highly regarded De Rosa brand of bikes. Cristiano De Rosa is not just a sponsor, he is part of the ICA family. We are looking forward to achieving great results on our new bikes, which are the best in the business”.
De Rosa is determined to handle ICA riders – preparing for a very ambitious season.
