Canada's team: set the bar high


Guillaume Boivin shows off his newly minted Canadian road champion jersey.

Now, that Canadian company Premier Tech has joined up with the Israel team for 2022 to solidify as Israel-Premier Tech making it a Canadian-influenced team more so.

Five out of six Canadians in the WorldTour are now at Israel-Premier Tech, with Hugo Houle joining Alexander Cataford, Guillaume Boivin, James Piccoli, and Michael Woods. As well, one of Canada's greatest cyclists, Steve Bauer will join as a director Sportif. 

I'm looking forward to Israel-Premier Tech's upcoming season.

"It really does feel like this is Canada's team. Right now, I think, well, this is the peak of Canadian cycling, but it's only gonna get better and I think we're gonna hopefully inspire more riders to move up their ranks again.

If you're Canadian back home watching this team, you have a team to root for. With Hugo coming on board, I've done the Olympics with Hugo now twice, world championships with him, he's such a great guy, such a great teammate, he's gonna really help bring everyone's level up.

Now that we have five Canadian riders in the WorldTour on this team I think we're really gonna set up the bar high and lead by example."
-Mike Woods. His goal is to win a 'big race' such as a monument or a stage of the Tour de France this year.

"I've been learning about all the riders, what makes them tick. Their personalities. I find it interesting and important."
-Steve Bauer. He joins IPT as a director sportif.
