Last Monday (05), through social networks, Israel – Premier Tech stated that it renewed Derek Gee’s contract until 2028. The confirmation of the new measure was due to the excellent performance that the cyclist demonstrated during the Giro d’Italia , which occurred last month.
“It was an incredibly easy decision for me to sign this new contract, I know five more years is a long time, especially in the cycling world, but this team feels right at home”, said the athlete who secured second place in the mountains classification during your last competition.
The Canadian was highly praised by Sylvan Adams, owner of Israel-Premier Tech, reinforcing that the contract renewal is just the beginning of the cyclist’s career: “We knew Derek had a great engine when we gave him a chance and hired him for our program U23 Continental a few years ago. But at this year’s Giro, Derek proved that he has racing smarts and the ability to work with the best riders in the professional field”.
