Israel Cycling Academy has confirmed three riders for the Giro d'Italia in addition to announcing a longlist of potential candidates to fill the remaining spots.

Latvian champion Krists Neilands is one of the three riders that are already certain of a spot in the Italian grand tour. The others are Belgian Ben Hermans and Spaniard Ruben Plaza.

The longlist of 12 riders features many nationalities and includes three Israeli riders who will compete for one spot in the final selection.

"Selection for ICA’s Giro team is difficult due the talent and commitment of our
riders,” says team co-owner Sylvan Adams.

"The final cut will necessarily disappoint some riders who are working hard. From the riders announced so far, Ben and Ruben were signed largely in anticipation of this race, our first participation in a Grand Tour. As for Krists’ early selection, he earned his position through his excellent
season start.

"For the remaining five rider selections, we will not necessarily be choosing the five best riders, but rather those that will complete our eight man Giro
squad, and provide the best opportunity to achieve our goals in this historic Giro that begins on home soil next month."

Ben Hermans (Belgium)
