James Piccoli of Montreal has joined the El­e­vate-KHS Pro Cy­cling Team for the 2017 and 2018 sea­sons bring­ing an im­pres­sive depth of climb­ing to the squad for the up­com­ing Tour of Utah and Colorado Clas­sic. The sign­ing fol­lows his stong per­for­mances rac­ing for the Cana­dian Na­tional Team at the Grand Prix Cy­cliste Sague­nay and his solid fifth place fin­ish on the Oak Glen stage at the Red­lands Bi­cy­cle Clas­sic. “Piccoli has taken a big step up in the last year and has re­ally im­pressed us,” said director Heath Black­grove. “He is con­sis­tently at the front end of ev­ery hard race and I am pos­i­tive that with the help and sup­port of our team, he will con­tinue to progress.”

Piccoli has joined sev­eral of his new team­mates in Cal­i­for­nia for an alti­tude train­ing camp. This has dou­bled as a great way to jump straight into the team en­vi­ron­ment. “The tran­si­tion to the new team has been su­per-easy be­cause of how great the staff and rid­ers have been and how wel­com­ing they are,” said Piccoli.

James Piccoli is hav­ing a break­out sea­son and signs with a new team.
