Israel Cycling Academy publishes list for Giro d’Italia 2018

giro d'Italia stage 9

The Israel Cycling Academy has finally made public the team’s top three leading riders at the upcoming Giro d’Italia roster and also several other cyclists who will have the chance to compete for the five remaining places.


Both Rubén Plaza and Ben Hermans were among the selected ones this year and they will surely bring life to the stage event. They will both join for help the Latvian champion Krists Neilands while he is getting ready to make his first ever Grand Tour debut in Jerusalem on May 4, 2018.


“Krists is Academy DNA: a young rider who grabbed the opportunity with both hands and has developed remarkably,” General Manager Ran Margaliot stated.


“He has come a long way since he joined us 16 months ago. His selection to our Giro squad is therefore very natural, yet it is going to be his first Grand Tour so we won’t put any pressure on him. We will let him ‘grow’ with the race and take it step by step based on his sensations in the second and third week.”
