Team Israel Start-Up Nation is delighted to announce its return to the UAE Tour. The team made its first appearance in the UAE Tour last season and was warmly received as the first Israeli team to race in an Arab country. A few months later, Israel and the UAE signed a historic peace agreement.
ISN has confirmed that its new rider, Chris Froome, will make the UAE Tour his inaugural race for the team in 2021, alongside Israeli champion, Omer Goldstein. “It’s great to return, this time as the Israeli champion,” said Goldstein. “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!”
