The 35-year-old Impi has been coming from the Australian team Mitchelton-Scott in Car Media for the past 8 years. During his career he has participated 7 times in the Tour de France and was the overall winner of the Australian Down Down Tour twice (2018 and 2019). This is an “all-around” rider who was twice the South African road cycling champion and 9 times the champion against the clock.

“Israel Startup Nation” was looking for experienced riders for the Tour de France, and Impi had to choose between extending his contract at Mitchleton-Scott and the Israeli team. In the end he decided to embark on a new path and that was great news for the Israeli team and its new senior rider Chris Fromm, They will win with the help of an experienced rider who has previously won a section in the Tour de France and even wore the yellow shirt.

“I felt I needed to get out of the comfort zone I had at Mitchleton-Scott,” Impi was quoted as saying in a press release, adding: “It was definitely not an easy decision and I thought about it a lot, but it excites me to work with a new team, with new energies and with new ambitions.. After talking to Sylvan Adams and the board members I realized that they see me as much more than a cyclist. As captain I will have the opportunity to lead, and more responsibility and challenge at the same time. Israel Startup Nation is a team that has progressed really fast and now it is trying to produce a culture of a winning team. I will use the experience I have gained in the last decade to instill this in the young guys and it really excites me. ”
