Britain’s Chris Froome will ride his inaugural race with Team Israel Start-up Nation, competing in upcoming the United Arab Emirates tour.
It is the second time the Israeli team has competed in UAE and comes after the historic peace agreement between the two countries.
Israeli champion, Omer Goldstein, who will be riding alongside Froome, said, “It’s great to return, this time as the Israeli champion. I hope that this time we will have Israelis visiting the UAE as peace tourists, coming to support us in person for the first time!”
We are delighted to return to the UAE 🇦🇪 Tour.
