Speed­ster Shani on the money in Bel­gium

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY STAN ROSE

SHANI Bloch clocked 2:43:18 at the UCI Cat­e­gory 1-2 Le Samyn des Dames road race from Quareg­non to Dour in Bel­gium.

Rac­ing for her new team, Den­mark’s TVW, the Is­raeli will mix her rac­ing as their No. 1 rider with a role as team man­ager in se­lected events.

Bloch is one of a num­ber of Is­raelis to have signed pro­fes­sional con­tracts with European teams. Omer Shapira has joined Ital­ian reg­is­tered GSB. She was placed 65th at 8:52, four min­utes be­hind the win­ner at the Women’s World Tour-Rank­ing in Strode Blanch, Siena. Al­most half the field failed to com­plete the hard-fought race.

In Bel­gium, the Spar – Om­loop van het Hage­land road race saw Rotem Gavi­novitz (WM3) fin­ish in the main bunch in 3:17:41.
