#Giroditalia #2018 Big Start from #Israel

Mauro Vegni, Giro d’Italia Director: “We are really proud to announce this Big Start to the world
today. Every year the Giro tells the stories of places of great
interest. Cities such as Jerusalem, with the initial ITT, Tel Aviv, with
the finish on the seafront, the starts from Haifa and Be’er Sheva,
Eilat and the Red Sea, are part of this philosophy.
The territories crossed by the stages in Israel will show to the world
tradition, culture and beautiful landscape. We will see spectacular
stages, that will surprise both from a sporting perspective and from the
landscape point of view. I am convinced the welcome for the Corsa Rosa –
as we have already seen in the previous Big Starts abroad – will be
really special.”
