Update: Michael Woods yet to be announced, but reported to have renewed with Israel - Premier Tech

After a brutal display, Michael Woods won the Puy de Dôme stage at the last Tour de France after destroying Matteo Jorgenson in the final meters of the mythical climb. The veteran Canadian cyclist, who also won a stage victory and the overall of the Route d'Occitanie, is yet to have a renewal officially announced, but it is reported that he already has a contract to 2024.

After being one of the most solid riders of Israel-Premier Tech in the last 3 seasons, at 37 years old he is yet to officially sign for a team in 2024. We know that it is not easy to find a place in the WorldTour, but we have seen with cases like Rui Costa that age is not important and that if you perform you will continue to have opportunities (the Portuguese has signed for EF Education-EasyPost).

After his great triumph in the Tour de France, he confessed that he had achieved the great goal that remained in his career, which also included victories in the Vuelta a España or in classics such Milano-Torino.

"I'm 36 years old, I'll be 37 in October... and I'm not going to get younger all of a sudden. My big sporting goal was to get a stage win in the Tour de France and I was running out of time".

UPDATE: After the publication of the article, several sources including RadioCycling and Velo's Sadhbh O'Shea have reported that Woods is staying with Israel - Premier Tech, the renewal just hasn't yet been announced.
