Ethan Vernon sees a room for growth within Israel-Premier Tech: "They understand exactly what I want with a view to the future"

Ethan Vernon is a British track and road cyclist who has been a professional since 2022. The 23-year-old will move to Israel-Premier Tech from 2024 onwards, forming a new 'young' core of the Israeli team.

"I look back on the past year with great satisfaction," he says before the start of the Super 8 Classic in an interview for In de Leiderstrui. "I was able to develop myself well again and won a few nice races. Moreover, things went very well on the track. So I'm very happy with how things went this season."

Vernon finds it difficult to label one specific result as the most beautiful. "If I really had to choose, perhaps the victory in Mallorca, because it took place right at the start of the season. But victory in Romandie is also high on the list."

Next season Vernon will represent the colors of Sylvan Adams' team. He will then become a teammate of Pascal Ackermann, Chris Froome, Simon Clarke and Jakob Fuglsang, among others. "They understand exactly what I want with a view to the future," he explains the thinking behind the transfer. "Moreover, with that team I can more easily help decide what my program will look like. I think there is a lot of potential to grow as a rider. There are a number of things that I would like to improve, both in general and specifically in my sprint."
