Cycling team competes in Hong Kong E-mail

The Israel Cycling Academy, Israel’s first pro-cycling team, participated in the invitational Hammer Series 2018 Hong Kong Cyclothon on 14 October. The event featured some of the top teams and riders in the world, including Team Sky from Great Britain and Lotto Soudal from Belgium.

The Hammer Series 2018 kicked off in Stavanger, Norway, in May, continued in Limburg, the Netherlands, in June, and finished in Hong Kong.

The event was a Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) Asia Tour Class 1.1 Road Race, with 11 UCI WorldTour teams (an unprecedented number) converging on Hong Kong’s shores, putting the international spotlight squarely on the city.

In a fast and furious race over a 4.3km circuit in Tsim Sha Tsui, alongside the picturesque Victoria Harbour, the teams, consisting of five cyclists each, competed head-to-head over 10 strenuous laps (43km in total).
