ICA announces the first official Rider signing for 2020: please welcome French Hugo Hofstetter!
While still full time/full gas busy with our 2019 racing campaign, we are already planning on boosting our team for 2020.
We are proud to announce our first 2020 addition with the signing of 25 years old Hugo Hofstetter from the French Team Cofidis.
Hofstetter will be expected to strengthen our Classic racing performance and after signing a 2 tiers contract with us, the French sounded enthusiastic taking on his new challenge after spending his whole pro career with team Cofidis.
“I needed a new challenge and was delighted to choose ICA because it has a different culture from what I have known until now. I want to bring the maximum to ICA in terms of results, especially the classics like Milan San Remo and hopefully even Paris Riunaix and race my first Grand Tour.”
ICA’s Pro manager Kjell Carlström:
“Hugo will strengthen the team both in one-day classics racing in Belgium, France and other countries, as well as bringing more depth into our team as a whole when looking for opportunities in stage races. We are looking forward to our journey together.”
When asked how he portrays himself, Hugo doesn’t hesitate:
“I am a fighter with a big mind, and I like it when the races are hard and exhausting“!
We like it, Man. That’s ICA DNA for you.
See you soon, Hugo.
