Israel Cycling Academy (UCI team code: ICA) is a UCI Pro Continental team founded in 2015 and based in Israel. It participates in UCI Continental Circuits races.[1] The team was launched in November 2014 by a team with the aim of developing young cyclists, especially from Israel.[2]

The team's first ever victory came in the fourth stage of the 2015 Tour d'Azerbaïdjan, which was won by Daniel Turek.[3]

On 2 July 2015, the team announced that it added the Israeli Road Racing Champion Guy Sagiv to its ranks.[4]

In 2018 the team participated in a Cycling monument event for the first time – 2018 Milan-San Remo, and in a Grand Tour event for the first time – 2018 Giro d'Italia.
