Flanders. Yes. Flanders!!
Soon on the Taaienberg, the Eikenberg, the Muur van Geraardsbergen...
Our first World Tour Belgian classic is here!
For us this just may be the most important moment in the 2 years ICA (Israel Cycling Academy) existence. It is definitely the most symbolic of moments in our quest to move higher and join the “Big boys” club.
What awaits us in the next few hours? What is on the minds of our riders? Some of them, like Israeli Aviv Yechezkel, have never ever experienced this kind of race- Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. What dot hey think?
"Not scared" he said. "Very emotional, yes. I know its’ going to be amazingly hard, but I will do all in my power. Can't do more, right?”
These cobbles are where men are made, and epic stories are told. The unforgiving roads through Flanders chew up and spit-out many riders, leaving them mud covered, sore when they cross the finish line…
Our race-proven classics specialists riders like Tyler Williams, Mikhel Raim, Zak Dempster, Ben Perry, and Dennis Van Winden have been here before, and are excited to hit the cobbles to show our young guys how it’s done….
ARE YOU READY?!?!
