This is a new chapter in ICA young life and its equally exciting as it a big question mark.

This is what you get when you send 6 young Israeli riders, 2 of them spent most their life riding Mountain bikes - To the boxing ring of sorts: Circuit des Ardennes International. An Elite UCI race which none of them (but one) has ever got even close.

They are our Development team. Only 5 months in existence and now meeting the greatest of their first UCI challenge ever : A 4 stages race on the Ardennes with two 180 km stages, a monstrous climbing 2nd day and a double stage for dessert.

"It will certainly be interesting to see how they adept to a race like that, facing big teams, Pro peloton, High speed and great distances. We certainly did not make it easy on them" admitted their manager Aviad Izrael. " But I believe in them. I really do".

" We need to know how they preform in this kind of level. There is no escaping that" explained our " Big boys" pro conti team Oscar Guerrero who will be the DS during the race.

The Guys? They seem to believe. " We are not coming here just to survive" said Yam Poliak ( 22).

We shall see.

The Squad:

Guy Niv
Ido Bear
Omer Goldstein
Guy Sessler
Itamar Einhorn
Yam Poliak

Einhorn for the sprints and Goldstein for the GC, but apart from Omer, survival should just be the target for the upcoming days.
