Notable new signings for the Swiss team include Dutch rider Stef Clement who signs from Belkin and Jerome Coppel who has moved from French team, Cofidis.
Leading riders such as Sylvain Chavanel, Heinrich Haussler, Martin Elmiger and current Hour Record holder Matthias Brändle will all continue with the team next year as they look to make an impact on the WorldTour.
IAM’s only WorldTour win came this year through sprinter Matteo Pelucchi, who took stage two of the Tirreno-Adriatico from San Vincenzo to Cascina in March this year.
The team also revealed its new kit at the team presentation on Thursday, and although it looks distinctly similar to this year’s kit, the design team seem to have had a spot of inspiration and come up with the idea of printing the IAM logo followed by each riders name on the rear of the jersey, as modelled by new signing David Tanner.

Marcel Aregger, Matthias Brändle, Sylvain Chavanel, Stefan Denifl, Martin Elmiger, Sondre Holst Enger, Mathias Frank, Jonathan Fumeaux, Heinrich Haussler, Reto Hollenstein, Roger Kluge, Pirmin Lang, Matteo Pelucchi, Jérome Pineau, Sebastien Reichenbach, Vicente Reynes, Aleksejs Saramotins, Patrick Schelling, Marcel Wyss
