Home is where the heart is for Academy

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY STAN ROSE

CY­CLING IS­RAEL’S Academy team are gear­ing up for the Gran Pre­mio della Costa Etr­us­chion in Italy next month.

The 2016 ros­ter of 12 rid­ers, which in­cluded five na­tional cham­pi­ons from Is­rael, USA, Canada, Namibia and Mex­ico, have been warm­ing up for the first match of the year with rig­or­ous train­ing ses­sions at Kib­butz Samer.

The team took ad­van­tage of the great Arava Desert roads and cli­mate to gain some valu­able miles in their legs.

Team man­ager Ran Mar­go­liot said: “As an Is­raeli team, com­pet­ing all over the world un­der an Is­raeli flag, we be­lieve it’s im­por­tant that all of our rid­ers are ex­posed to the Is­raeli scenery and to the fa­mous Is­raeli hos­pi­tal­ity at least once.”
