Giro d'Italia 2018 stage profiles http://www.cicloweb.it/2017/11/29/anteprima-altimetrie-giro-2018/

Froome confirmed that he is going to participate.

 

Stage 1:

And that, right there, is why Israel is now mad as fuck :lol:

 

In their minds, it should be just called 'Jerusalem' (even though apparently the international community doesn't really accept it like that, since the East is apparently one of the many occupied Palestine areas), and because the Giro organizers named it as 'West Jerusalem' (which they did to stay away from political stuff) the Israeli government is now threatening to withdraw all support :roflmao:

 

In the Netherlands, we would call this 'Calimero-behaviour', after a popular children's series. I just saw it is a Japanese/Italian series originally, so maybe you know it :p

It's a joke!!!!:facepalm: What does it means start GIRO from Israel? :wacko:

OK..... need open at the new markets for improve the investments (for GIRO d'ITALIA), OK.... for the money; but Israel is really interested at cycling?

Don't like the starting places out of Italy!!!!!!

 

PS: Yes, "Calimero" was very famous also in Italy.

Well it's not new that they start in Israel, that has been known for quite a while already :p 

 

There is an Israel Cycling Team in the ProConti level, so there's...something :lol:

They changed it to "Jerusalem"... apparently they already had an alternative plan (start in Sicily, 3 more stages in Southern Italy), it would have been funny to see Froome's reaction :lol:.

 

Calimero was (and is) very famous for being the protagonist of TV commercials almost 60 years ago, when there were only 10 minutes of commercials per day and they never repeated the same one twice. (hello Eurosport).
