Coppi e Bartali is on the menu.

The Italian stage race - La Settimana Internazionale di Coppi e Bartali is a beautiful opportunity for us to honour the memory of the legendary Italian champion Gino Bartali, who was recognised as a righteous among the nations, by the Yad Vashem: World Holocaust Center, Jerusalem.

Bartali, who was one of the greatest champions in the history of cycling, won multiple titles of the Giro d'Italia and Le Tour de France. It was only a few years ago though, that the stories about Bartali's noble acts to save Italy's Jews, during the 2nd World-War, started to emerge.

We feel that there is no need to explain, how special it is for an Israeli team like us, to be invited to such a prestigious race, that honours the great sportive rivalry between Gino Bartali and his greatest cycling rival Fausto Coppi.
We may only say, that for us, Bartali will always remain a symbol of an exceptional champion. On and off the bike.
"Il bene si fa, ma non si dice" he once said (Italian to: "Good is something you do, not something you talk about").
And we hope that every single one of our team member, will be inspired by Bartali's legacy.
