Five great former champions are cycling Israeli roads on the itinerary of the upcoming Giro d’Italia which will start off from Jerusalem on May 4, 2018.
Alessandro Ballan, Maurizio Fondriest, Paolo Savoldelli, Gibo Simoni and Andrea Tafi have collected many victories in their careers whether in the Giro or at the World Championships or other very important competitions. Now they are on a very special journey for another race.
Guests of the Israeli Ministry of Tourism and accompanied by a select group of journalists, including a Pagine Ebraiche reporter, the five champions are currently experiencing the emotions of all the athletes who will take part in the Giro this coming May.
All agree: a piece of cycling history is going to be written in Jerusalem.
