I can’t believe it’s over. The @giroditalia in Israel. We waited so much for this to happen, to be part of this world class sport event, a grand cycling tour, which took place outside of Europe for the 1st time after 101 years and painted the whole country in pink.
When I first heard about the idea of the @giroditaliaisrael and the big start in Jerusalem, I couldn’t believe it would happen. But it’s all thanks to one man with a big vision to develop the sport of cycling in Israel. Thank you Sylvan Adams for thinking big, for the investment, for making a change through cycling, a sport I love so much.
We had an amazing experience. We watched the team’s presentation in Jerusalem on Thursday, we cheered through the TT in Jerusalem on Friday and watched the peloton flying by on the roads of Tel Aviv on Saturday.
Today, we were glued to the TV screens while the pack made its way from Be’er Sheva to Eilat through the beautiful Israeli desert.
We are also represented for the first time by an Israeli team, the @israelcyclingacademy who’ve worked so hard to be part of this rare opportunity. We wish you good luck in the rest of the tour in Italy.
What a weekend it was, with the family, who joined the thrill, good friends who shared the excitement, and so many great memories.
Now back to reality. Until next time!
