The Elevate-KHS Pro Cycling Team is excited to announce the addition of James Piccoli to the roster for the 2017 and 2018 seasons. James is a native of Montreal, Canada and will be bringing an impressive depth of climbing to the team for the upcoming Tour of Utah and Colorado Classic.
“We are super excited to welcome James Piccoli to the Elevate-KHS Pro Cycling Team,” Director Heath Blackgrove explains. “He has taken a big step up in the last year and has really impressed us. 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. He is a great addition to our team and we are all excited to work with him.”
James has joined several of his new teammates in the mountain town of Truckee, CA for an altitude training camp. This has doubled as a great way to jump straight into the team environment. With 6 teammates to tackle long rides with, the benefit will be undeniable come race time.
“The training in Truckee is awesome! I am having so much fun exploring new roads and the scenery here is incredible. 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, ” James recounted as we discussed his new setting. “We have already had some good rides, good dinners and good laughs so I can’t ask for much more. I’m really looking forward to The Tour of Utah and hoping to be a bit of a surprise there! I have never raced this event before, but I believe the team will come away with some pretty good results.”
James recently raced for the Canadian National Team at the Grand Prix Cycliste Saguenay after his solid early season successes which included a 5th place finish on the Redlands Bicycle Classic Oak Glen stage. Being fluent in French, Italian and English will add another layer of culture to our already diverse squad. We are excited to have James aboard and we are looking forward to many great race days ahead.
