Israel Start-Up Nation is excited to announce that Giacomo Nizzolo will join the team in 2022 adding firepower to the team’s sprint and one-day race rosters.
As former European Champion and stage winner in the Giro d’Italia, where he has also won the points classification on two occasions, Nizzolo has been one of the most consistent sprinters over the last 10 years. The 32-year-old Italian is always amongst the top contenders in the bunch sprints while also being a strong card to play in the challenging one-day races.
Giacomo Nizzolo: “To join this team is something really special for me. From the outside, it looks like a really nice team with a great group of people working very well together to reach its big goals. I’m really proud to become part of this team. I’m super happy and super motivated and I’m sure we will achieve big goals together.
“Given my level of performances over the last couple of years, I hope to continue to improve and only get better. Milano-Sanremo is my dream race so I would really like to be at good level there but in general, I just want to take my chance every time there is an opportunity for me. I’m really looking forward to joining the team next year!”
ISN General Manager, Kjell Carlström: “We are happy to strengthen the team with such a strong rider as Giacomo. He has shown consistency over the years and he continues to improve. On top of that, he is also a great teammate as we could see during the World Championships in Belgium this year.
“This is a natural fit for us. We have been working hard on establishing a strong leadout train over the last couple of years, which really came to the fore during the 2021 season with several good results. Adding Giacomo to the equation gives us even more opportunities in the sprints next year.”
