The historic start-up season of Nation continues – the Israeli team will start the Giro d’Italia in Sicily on Saturday. Less than two weeks after making history in Paris in its first Tour de France, Israel Startup Nation in Sicily will jump into the second most important race in the world – the Giro d’Italia – with the stated goal of achieving its first ever Grand Tour victory.
Israeli Champion Guy Sagiv Only two years ago, he was the first Israeli to smash the glass ceiling when he jumped into the historic Giro in Jerusalem and successfully completed it three weeks later in Rome – made it clear that this time it is a completely different challenge for him and the team. “I am not coming this time to take a ride just to finish,” the Israeli clarified. “I believe I ride better, with more experience and also with confidence elsewhere. My ambition is to help the team take a win here and get a chance to escape. It’s going to be a lot more challenging and a lot harder than the historic Giro that the whole country will never forget. “
The owner of the team is Sylvan Adams, who intends to accompany the team to the Giro as well, after the tremendous experience in the Tour de France and the exciting end on the Elysee boulevard with Guy Niv – the first Israeli to do so. “The gyro in Israel will of course always be remembered by all of us as a source of immense pride – and the status that marked the great turn for the group. I hope and believe that we can achieve another historic milestone here. “
The gyro will take off on Saturday, October 3, in the island of Sicily. The race will cross Italy over 3450 kilometers and climb to the Dolomites peaks before ending on October 25 in central Milan. Similar to the Tour de France, the entire column will be run under a strict “bubble” regime to protect riders and crew members from the Corona, which will of course threaten to disrupt and cancel the column. Since the end of the column, the situation in Europe has only been deteriorating in the face of the second corona wave sweeping the continent.
